Sanjhi art

Visual Arts Gallery, India Habitat Centre (IHC) | From August 8 to 12 | 11 am to 7 pm

Sanjhi, the art of hand cutting stencils from paper to create patterns on the floor, is believed to have its origins in the cities of Mathura and Vrindavan in Uttar Pradesh. As a part of the temple rituals in this region, intricate multicoloured rangoli or floor patterns are created with coloured powder using the stencils. Over time, the use of Sanjhi declined steadily and the number of artisans practicing the craft was reduced to just a few families.  The exhibition, ‘Sanjhi- Revisited’ will take viewers on a mesemrising journey to the architectural marvels of yesteryears through this craft.
