BRIDAL WEAR - KANCHI SAREE


Bridal Wear - is an acrylic painting of size 36"x30".
The bright short colored (two differnt hues of blue here) heavy silk Kanchi saree (hand woven in Kancheepuram) with real gold woven border is representative of our traditional South Indian wedding dresswear. The long string of woven jasmine flowers is worn on the hair along with lots of bangles for the hands. A South Indian bride is dressed very colorfully. I hope to paint a figurative version of the Indian bride- some time in the near future.
