Artist's Description

Through a beautiful sculpted Hindu archway**, I gaze over the Aravalli Hills that litter the Rajasthani landscape.

The hills stretch approximately 560 km from northeast to southwest Rajasthan, and then continue as isolated hills and ridges into the state of Haryana (formerly part of the state of Punjab) and near Delhi.

The highest point is on Mt Abu, and is known as Guru Shikar. It rises 5653 feet (1.72 km). The hill range is further divided into the Sambhar-Sirohi and the Sambhar-Khetri ranges.

The peaks of the Aravalli Hills are famous for their white peaks, formed not by snow, but by large masses of rose coloured quartz.
