About Thikri Art

Thikri art is a form of glass mosaic or mirror inlay work from Rajasthan that adorned palaces, temples, and havelis (mansions) with its incredible beauty. Initially, Thikri craft was reserved for embellishing royal abodes, and majorly floral or ornamental motifs were used. However, over time, it permeated everyday life, embellishing a wide array of items such as furniture and jewelry, incorporating motifs ranging from geometry, vegetation, and animals to deities.

History and Legend

The art of Thikri was brought to India centuries ago by skilled artisans from Persia. Over time, it evolved and adapted to local sensibilities, becoming an integral part of Rajasthan's cultural landscape. The iconic song from the Bollywood movie 'Mughal-e-Azam,' released in 1960, features Madhubala dancing within the Sheesh Mahal, adorned by skilled Thikri artisans. The delightful craftsmanship not only enhanced the scene but also created an illusion of countless Madhubalas dancing simultaneously, reflecting the magic of this traditional art form.

Technique and Style 

Thikri artisans meticulously handcraft each piece, beginning with the selection of high-quality glass mirrors. These mirrors are cut into various shapes and sizes, ranging from tiny squares to intricate geometric patterns. The artisans then insert these mirrors into a base material, typically plaster or wood, using natural adhesives like gum Arabic or lime mortar. The magic of Thikri lies in its symmetrical patterns and meticulous craftsmanship where artisans skillfully arrange the mirrors to create mesmerizing designs that reflect light and create a dazzling play of colors.
