Designs from India

Textile design in India is pretty beautiful. Most of the pashmina scarves were woven with a loom, and which had a lot of intricate details and complex color schemes. You can also see this in traditional saris. This vendor was gracious enough to wait for us to finish our tour of the museum.

Jewerly design

I was really impressed with this bracelet, which I couldn't zoom in close enough. The bracelets are made of interlocking miniature U-shaped gold rings that have ruby gems embedded on the ends. When looking at it, you're not sure where the designer started. Also, the bracelet looks hand-crafted.

Engraved sculptures made out of precious woods and stones. One of these sculptures had a heavy sandalwood scent because it was carved out of sandalwood. Some are carved crystals, ivory and jade.
