Brass figures are trendy right now. Brass giraffes, brass elephants. Well how about a brass crab or cow? Not as charming, right?! But wait …
A few years ago while visiting Bangalore, our hotel had big brass figures in niches in the dining room. Not being able to sneak them in my pocket (not that I would have done that!), I snuck pictures of them. Instead of taking pictures of all of them at once, which would have been weird, every day during breakfast I snuck a few more pictures of a few more brass figures. Also still weird.

I am so amazed when I see such detailed work – so happy that there are still cultures who keep the handmade ‘thing’ going. The detail is just out of this world. I absolutely adore the last one!!!
Thanks so much for sharing such beauty.
Agree, maintaining these arts and crafts where you can see the hand of man in the making of them is important! Thank you Lis!
