I decided to buy a set of ear rings and 2 pairs of beads so I can make a set of ear ring at home, from my previous hobby of making ear ringsJ. The paintings on the tiles looked like a sari or a dress J
Then I saw some wooden artifacts from Uttar Pradesh such as wooden cars, tractors, bicycles, spatulas and brass embedded tables.
One of the best stalls was that of the marble carvings. The stall had very intricate carvings of various gods on colored marble like white, black, green, red. The best one was that of Lord Venkateshwara with very detailed and sharp carvings of dancers and devotees.
The others which were equally marvelous were that of Lord Ganesha, The Samudra manthan episode, Buddha, decorative tortoise. I grabbed pictures of few.
The whole place is quite big with other stalls of paintings, traditional dresses, bamboo artifacts, traditional footwears etc. It was way too sunny for me to continue, so we decided to leave until we hit another Rajasthani stall of Kawad.
