Smart Art or Mindblowing Magic ?

Take a shopping tour of Rajasthan to buy articles that have emerged not as a fashionable decorative feature, but as a necessity in the life of Rajasthani folk. They took their potteries and gave them shapes, coloured them that were pleasing to the eye; they decorated their clothes so that, they can paint beautiful sceneries in the desolate surroundings of the desert; they wore jewellery and dolled up in embroidered shoes; and hence after centuries, a kaleidoscope of breathtakingly beautiful and unparalleled art-de-facts, enfolds in the lap of this desert land with their own age old culture and traditions.

Rajasthan shopping is famous for its jewellery industry and it is one of the world's largest centre for hand-cutting of gems. Semi-precious and precious stones come to the Pink City, Jaipur for cutting and polishing, but are carved into figurines and statuettes. A rose-pink quartz can be turned into an elephant, jade shaped into a Krishna figurine, and sandstone patterened as Lord Ganesh. 'Meenakari', the art of enamelling on gold and silver is another glitter that is reflected at the bazaars of Rajasthan. The best way you can ssavor the shopping delight in Rajasthan is buy getting one of those exquisite jewelleries for someone 'special' in life. Nowhere does the brilliant craftsmanship come to the alee as splendidly as it does, when it comes to Rajasthani textiles. For centuries, Rajasthani printers have blended vegetable dyes and mineral colours, so perfectly, that nowhere else in the world divergent colours showed complimentary feats with such confidence as in Rajasthan.
