Henna & Bangles... by Biren Brahmbhatt


Small (23.2" x 15.4")

Available to buy on…

A representation of a tradition, a culture and a civilization which is as ancient as the urban mankind…

Henna… the color of it is Joy… it is beauty of a woman… it is festivity… it is happiness of being together… has special significance for married women in India… the smell of it is as soothing as a rose…

The bangles are symbol of beauty… wealth… and being married… which in India is amongst utmost joys of life…

The fingers inter-twinned with each other symbolizes the strong values of the culture of living together… closely bonded family… the color of the cloth and the fabric of the cloth are signs of prosperity… the silk and the sky blue color… they not only symbolize the life-style but the life-state as well… it is all festive and joyous out there…
