The Royal Sun

In India, the sun is considered a god among quite a few tribal communities, and for good reason. Many tribal folks worship the sun since many of their beliefs are based on pantheism - worship of nature. The rock shelters in the state of Orissa in India are tangible evidence of how ancient the sun worship practice is. Sun worship started in India in the neolithic period. Ever since the sun became an important object of artistic creation among tribal and rural folk. Surya Devta, or the sun god, has found a prominent place in tribal arts where he is painted in its original form but with eyes. Many tribal craftsmen have also experimented with creating a half-and-half depiction of the sun where half of the sun is painted all black, representing the night while the other half has eyes and mouth in a white or neutral background, representing a day.

The much acclaimed “Wrought Iron Craft of Bastar” comes from the Bastar region - the place that’s known for its craftsmanship and original wrought iron process around the world. In fact, this specific process has been protected under the Geographical Indication (GI) of the Agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS). Bastar is a hub of skilled ironsmiths who have made a living from following this traditional wrought iron techniques from their ancestral origins. Our artisans belong to Gondi and Maria - the two communities that are particularly well-versed with iron-crafting.
