The Indian subcontinent is known for its rich history in art, culture and creativity. Even today the artwork of this country receives appreciation from different parts of the world.
Indian art represents the shared value, belief and practices of the Indian culture and brings life to the Indian culture. For a beginner the easiest way to figure out whether the artwork is from India or not is through colours. A lot of Indian artists use bright and vibrant colour to represent Indian culture accurately.
This republic day, India Circus brings you 6 designs that are truly inspired by India. Let’s take a walk down the memory lane:
1. The Tusker Chariot
In Indian culture, elephants are a symbol of mental strength, responsibility, goodwill and wealth. Hindus have worshipped elephants for centuries and are considered as a living version of Lord Ganesha.
In India, it is believed that having an elephant statue outside the entrance gate of the house will bring wealth and luck to the family.
Elephants are also considered as a symbol of royalty, in most of the Royal family wedding, the groom enters the venue while sitting on the Elephant.
This range of designs is called the Tusker Chariot on India Circus.
2. Mughal Traffic? Well, Maybe ..
This Image is an accurate representation of contemporary and traditional India.
