Story Behind the Art:
India's Ganesh Sharma comes from Vrindavan in Uttar Pradesh, the birthplace of Lord Krishna. 'My encounter with this artwork occurred when I was about 17, when my cousin began to teach me,' he says. 'Painting was not a very popular craft with Vrindavan shoppers, so I decided to incorporate my creativity into utility items like bowls and vases, and design them with paintings. They have been a big hit and I've shown my work in several exhibitions across the country.'

  • Beautiful covered bowl adorned with elephants

    Beautiful covered bowl with Indian Elephants decorating the lid. I bought this for myself because it looked so lovely in the pic. I have a varied elephant collection and I thought this would nicely add more variation to it, it does. Colors are true. Beautiful craftsmanship. Also useful, however the most I'll use it for is guitar picks on the piano!
