Client Name : Priyadarshini
Location : Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh
The Canvas :

8 puppets each of size 12" by 12" for the pooja room door

The Craft :

Charmakari from Andhra Pradesh

Inspiration :

Priya is a devotee of Goddess Lakshmi and she chose to have 'Ashthalakshmi' (8 manifestations of the Goddess) on the Pooja room door. To add some drama into her interiors, we chose shadow puppets instead of paintings. The translucent puppets let the lights in the Pooja room create an ethereal effect.

Challenges :

Langauge. The artisans speak a strange dialect of Telugu and it took us one whole project to establish a communication mechanism.
