Wall Motifs

Life often throws pleasant surprises at us. The same happened with us when we visited this Gujarati style artificial village Chokhi Dhani, set up as a tourist attraction on the outskirts of Mumbai city. Besides enjoying the puppet shows, rope walking and Banjara dances performed by the folk artistes, we were specially impressed by the beautiful wall paintings all over the place. Have a look!!

Similar designs are seen all over rural India with flowers, sun, moon, leaves etc are popular motifs.
