Notes on Antique Textiles, Folk Art & Timeless Traditions – Jaina Mishra
On a highway outside Jaisalmer, driving at 80kmph, I spot an artistically decorated walled enclave.
The driver is instructed to stop.
He is first confused about my request to visit the enclave that looks like a home. But after a few hurried explanations – he understands.
He alights from the car and walks to the gate.
It turns out to be the home of an extended family belonging to a particular Bhil tribe.
A life that is bare & free from material entrapments. Yet overflowing with art!
