Description

Artist Statement: "Sheesh Mahal from the House of Bal is a testament to his love affair with the ever so glorious craft of ‘Thikri’ - mirror work, which has lived on from the era of the Mughals (used in the interiors of the Royal Courts of Rajasthan and Delhi). Every single one of these tiny convex mirrors has been drawn, cut and arranged by hand for over 300 hours. A true labour of love, Sheesh Mahal stands as a symbol of Bal’s poetic love for India’s boundless rich heritage."
