Orissa crafts fair
SANDSTONE ICONS, ikat saris and yardage, dhokraware, silver filigree jewellery and applique work make the Sri Jagannath Darshan exhibition-cum-sale a shopper's Paradise. While the sandstone sculptures, especially those of apsaras in "shringara" poses are breathtaking, every Oriya hand-crafted artefact on display embodies the State's unique craft legacy.
Beautiful dhokra wall hangings, lamps, knobs, colourful pipli work home furnishings, garden umbrellas, palm leaf engravings, tribal paintings on tussar as well as
silver filigree jewellery beckon attention.
The Sambhalpur, Bomkai, Katki and tussar saris and yardage are eye-catching. The ikat sarees have typical motifs and borders in striking combinations. Attractive ikat salwar kurta unstitched sets with unusual duppatas are compelling.
"Sri Jaganath Darshan" has been brought to Chennai by Karma of Bhuvaneswar and is on till June 30 at Sri Sankara Mini Hall, 1st Floor, 262, TTK Road.
