Intoxicating India : Jaipur Antiquariat Indian Art Shop : February 2013

During the fifth day of our holiday tour of India (see Intoxicating India 2013 : Day 5), we visited the Antiquariat Art Shop in Jaipur. There are thousands of art pieces on display here and I did take quite a number of photos (what can I say, I love art!), so to make it easier to view I am presenting them in a few categories.
- for more Indian Art see Photo Gallery - Indian Art.


Firstly, we were shown how semi-precious stones are prepared and in-laid onto marble art pieces such as table tops, etc.

Some of the semi-precious stones use for in-laying into marble - malachite, tiger's eye, torquise and even corals.

Others used are pearls, opals, amethyst and even sea shells.

Rubies, topaz, emerald, sapphire, etc. are also used.

The craftsmen will skillfully polish the stones, carve openings onto proper positions in the marble and set them into these holes.
