Exhibit, sale: The Ajanta Collection


For a brand new store, Indya kaleidoscope has reason to be very proud! The first exhibit and sale of some fine art, on pottery and wood. The Ajanta Collection. Amazing work, Preethi! Good luck!

In her own words: “The Ajanta Collection”, is a small collection of terracotta decorative and wooden wall panels that have reproductions of Ajanta frescoes. The eight day exhibit is a tribute to the historical pilgrim center and the artist who rediscovered the beauty.

Folk in Bangalore, do not miss this.
