Showcase your love for unique objects by putting this striking decorative marble plate artifact in your living room. This artwork is crafted on marble with floral motifs in vivid colors and intricate detail.
The art depicts a royal elephant & mahout (elephant caretaker) transporting their royal Mughal passengers.
The artwork is drawn on clean marble surface with pencil. Motifs usually consist of flowers, petals and leaves, animals, portraits etc. Most drawings are freehand, with some help from rulers and other tools. The motifs are embossed by brush application of a mixture of village sand and glue. Once dry, pencil lines are erased and a coat of yellow paint mixed with varnish is applied to designs. Imitation gemstones and colored glass, called “Nagina” are stuck to motifs and enhance the beautiful artwork with added glitter. Craftsmen incorporate miniature paintings into their work to add interest to the craft. A final coat of varnish seals all the elements together and protects them from scratches.
