One of the most admirable handicrafts of Kerala- the Aranmula Vaalkannadi- given a new form at The Craft Safari. Our good friend - Bindu Nair shared with us her desire to add to her possession an Aranmula Kannadi with a difference. She had the Kathakali art form in her mind. We travelled to Aranmula and spend time with our artisan to check the possibilities of creating one. And after several discussions, travels, long distance conversations- our artisan created this masterpiece. Standing tall at a height of 1ft and weighing around 8kgs, intricate craftmanship and the Kannadi taking a different form- we are happy at what was finally handcrafted. Thank you Bindu for the opportunity and for your patience. And finally thanks to the artisan who crafted this masterpiece. We are...because of you...
