Man and Woman from Rajasthan

Man and Woman from Rajasthan

Man and Woman from Rajasthan

Rajasthan, the Rajputana country of the Rajputs is famous for its yellow sand, intricate architectures, traditional and colorful arts and vibrant attires. Agriculture is the main occupation and it has a mix of dominant hindus and minorities of muslims and jains. The dresses have a sundry blend of different colors which they accessorize with heavy ornaments that identify their status, religion and region. Rajasthani culture is followed by the principle of ‘atithi devo bhava’, means to treat guests like you would treat god. Each of the attires have a deep significance.

Pagri (turban) is one of the most important parts of men’s attires as it defines their social and economic status. The upper garment is called angrakha which means protecting the body. It is available in various colors and is made of cotton cloth. White dhoti is their everyday garment, covering the lower portion of body. One with embroidered border is used mostly for special events. The woman wears a ghaghra, which is a long skirt, pleated, narrow from the waist and broad at the bottom reaching ankle length. This doll wears a yellow ghaghra, richly printed with red colored flower patterns and a border. Red, elbow sleeved choli (blouse) accompanies the ghaghra with a green colored odhni (chunni), worn over the blouse with one end tucked in skirt and the other end covers the head, forming expanded pleats in the front.

Rajasthanis’ have a peculiar taste in jewelry. Rich women wear gold and pearl chains, big jhumkis, bangles, anklets, nose pin and big round maang tika. Men also wear ear studs and kada (bangle). Silver Hansli (big round bracelet around the neck) is worn by commoners (both men and women). These dolls depict ways of both rich and common people. Their footwear is called mojari or jooti, worn by both men and women, made of animal skin and embellished with embroidery.

A Statue was ordered on Dec 22nd and Paid 194.25 including FREE DELIVERY for me as a GIFT for Christmas and they Confirmed that it will be there in 4-5 days but it NEVER arrived till 30th of December and inspite of my various emails they only replied that it is being finished and will be shipped in 24hrs but that was a LIE and no further delivery information was every sent to me. I called and left a message on the phone number listed on their website which is a NY number but no one answered that phone and I left messages but no reply or update on my Statue was sent to me inspite of my daily emails to know the status. I still await this Statue but NO RESPONSIBLE REPLY.
