Saturday Snapshot: July 9


A clay wall panel from a resort I visited in April 2011. Click to enlarge and see the fine detailing.  I love this!

Addendum: These are handmade, dried in the sun, baked in a kiln and then painted, if so desired. Each small square depicts something from the normal daily life. A few might deviate to give it an unique character. Rather very common in Rural India. They prefer to decorate their walls like this. And I find that so do I!

Beautiful! I showed it to my kids (they are always sitting on my lap this time of the morning) and they came up with some very interesting stories about the pictures.

Beautiful! I especially like the picture with the baby in the cradle hanging from the tree branch.

That is really quite lovely. Before I read your post I had assumed it was Middle Eastern, not Indian. Did you have a nice vacation at that resort?

Kay said...

Wow, that is really interesting. At first I thought it told a story, but it seems more like scenes from a life or something. Thanks for sharing it!

Fabulous detail, especially when you think about the process of creating this wall. Thanks for sharing.

Pictures in clay seem so amazing. It's a hard substance to turn into art.

Alyce said...

Those details are great! I've never seen anything like this for decoration before.

I thought you were going to say they were very old. Interesting that these are contemporary.
