Description

For centuries, the Gajasimha or the image of a lion straddling an elephant has consistently featured in the art and architecture of the Indian subcontinent. While on its own the lion is taken to be a regal creature, when it pins down a submissive elephant, the moment is frozen in art to depict a just and able ruler who is able to lord over a fertile and prosperous kingdom.

The Gajasimha Note Holder has been carefully carved in such a manner that both the animals can be distinctly recognised from multiple angles. Meant to both intimidate and delight, the artefact is designed in a manner that the note holder on its back is visible only to the person sitting behind the object. A cue for the corporate ruler who loves to play fair and square!

The synthesis of folk and classical forms constitute the wood carving traditions of Odisha. Our craftsmen have assembled a collection of beautiful and utilitarian objects that exhibit sharp, fine features and an exquisite needle work finish. Designed and etched with careful detail, the products are made from a soft and light cream wood called Gambhari or white teak. Our wooden objects are textured, finished with great smoothness, whittled and carved to utmost finesse.

Silver filigree, also known as Tarakashi, is a unique craft of Odisha. Intricate, delicate and regal in its semblance, it is the skilled artistry of our craftsmen that lends the art-form its elegance and the famous sobriquet - woven moonlight . The artisans first prepare a frame work for the article by means of a piece of silver wire drawn into thread as fine as a spider's web. This is followed by suturing and fashioning the inner textures, setting it inside the frame to create jewellery and other objects of infinite beauty.
