Bringing magic of Rajasthan alive

The Sawai Mansingh II  Museum Trust and the French Embassy in Delhi brought the magic of Rajasthan alive in the capital through a unique exposition “Treasures of Rajasthan.”The exhibition depicted the state’s heritage travel, luxury craftwork and fine arts at the Indira Gandhi National Centre for Arts. Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje opened the exhibition.

Princess Diya Sawai Man Singh, a descendant of Maharaja Sawai Bhawani Singh of Jaipur, said: “the exhibition aims to encourage and revive the state’s languishing arts and crafts and is an extension of my endeavour to not just keep the crafts alive but also provide a means of livelihood to its practitioners. It is also a continuation of a family tradition of promoting arts and crafts, which started way back in the 18th century by Maharaja Sawai Man Singh II, who set up 36 karkhanas or state-patronised ateliers for different crafts. I feel duty-bound to preserve and promote my cultural inheritance.”
