The Pachyderm March

Rs. 1,565.00

The skilled artisan has used the pachyderm or elephant in all its majesty. The elephant has enjoyed a charismatic status especially in India from the earliest times, and its representations in various arts and paintings are omnipresent. These gentle giants have depicted here in their most graceful aspect, decorated in finery and moving along in orderly fashion. The depiction here of the elephants is strong, stately and imperialistic.   The delicate and colored Sikki grass from Bihar has been skillfully twined to produce this handcrafted beauty.  The artisan has retained the original splendor of the golden color that is the hallmark of this grass.

The superlative dexterity displayed by the artisan in this particular work of art is truly noteworthy.  The art work uses the elephant for its many facets - as a domesticated animal to be displayed in functions and also because of the religious connotations of this loveable gigantic creature.

This particular grass is found in Bihar in major clusters in Raiyam and Umari villages.  It is not available all year round and can only be harvested for use after the monsoon.  It is painstakingly collected by the artisans who transform this humble natural produce in to products that are truly breathtaking.   These products are made at no cost or damage to the earth even in production eco-friendly alternatives are used to synthesize this grass in to works of art such as this one. 

Highlights:

  • Original bright gold color of the grass
  • Deft use of technique to create this piece
  • Elegant depiction of revered elephant
