Ravi Varma Arts

Raja Ravi Varma

        I have been fascinated by the paintings of Raja Ravi Varma (1848-1906) since my childhood...His contemporary collections predict reality..

       Great injustice has been done to the artist Ravi Varma in our country because he used modern hues and oils in his work and because of the western influence in his paintings. The critics said his was not Indian art... To me, Ravi Varma is not only among India's greatest artists, but also a great patriot. His depiction of the beauty of the Indian woman is unequalled in Indian art.....

           Here are some of his paintings i really admire and i hope u too will love it.....

Bonsai the creative couture in plants

         Bonsai is actually two words, "Bon", and "Sai". The word "Bon" means "tray" and "Sai", "growing" or "planting". Therefore, the two words put together give you the translation of "tray growing" or "tray planting". When you say the word, "Bonsai" to people, they usually think of a type of tree. However, this art form is  actually  a  way  of  growing  many different species of plants and trees.
