Curl up with these Jaipur Beauties!
The Jaipuri Razai is just one of the many crafts that the Pink City is known for. The industry dates back to the founding of the city in 1727, and these quilts have been sourced from fourth generation makers especially. Jaipur Razais feature Sanganeri and Mughal block printed designs, and the whole process from printing, to preparation to the actual quilting is painstakingly labour intensive. Some makers experiment with contemporary design vocabularies to create new idioms in this age old craft.

Divinities vanquish Disease (Jaipur School Miniatures)
At the crossroads of the variant realms of religion and health, several visual traditions in India portray divinities vanquishing disease. The cult of “disease goddesses” is prevalent across the land, with regional variations : be it the classical Hariti, and later - the now very popular Shitala; or her southern counterpart Mariyamma, to name a few.
This series of six works, executed in the Jaipur school style, portrays the divinites eradicating disease, personified by demons. Hanuman, Vishnu and Shakti: this powerful trinity protects us from deadly diseases by vanquishing demons (their bodies, replete with pustules, showing clear symptoms of disease).
As we encounter disease and death at close quarters during this tumultuous time, we hope that this series of small format paper works can rekindle hope and bring in some positive energy.
