About the Artwork +

Renowned Tarkashi artist Mohan Lal Sharma enchantingly integrates a specific design in the art form, showcasing divergent and interlinked slanting curved lines centralized in the square, margined with geometric florals at each corner, and invertedly connected paisleys. Slanting curved lines, especially when interconnected and moving in opposite directions, symbolize balance and harmony. The opposition of the lines represents the dualities or contrasts in life, and their interconnection signifies the reciprocity of all things. Geometric florals symbolize growth, beauty, and the natural world. The combination of the square and flowers represents the idea of nature contained within a structured and balanced framework. The upside-down orientation of the paisleys suggests a sense of change or transformation, signifying unity or the coming together of different elements.

    Tarkashi Craft


    Tarkashi, also known as metal wire inlay or brass wire inlay, is an ancient art form that originated in India. This intricate craft involves embedding fine metal wires, typically brass or copper, into the surface of wood to create ornate patterns and designs. The result is a stunning visual contrast between the metal and the wood, making Tarkashi a popular decorative technique in furniture, musical instruments, and other wooden artifacts.  History and Tradition While the exact origin of Tarkashi is unclear, it is believed that it was practiced in regions known for their woodworking and metalworking traditions. The craft flourished during the Mughal era, with artisans incorporating intricate metal inlay designs into wooden structures, doors, and furniture, often for royal courts and aristocratic households.  The designs often draw inspiration from traditional Indian motifs, such as floral patterns, geometric shapes, and religious symbols. Religious and spiritual themes, with designs depicting Hindu deities, or religious narratives can also be seen in Tarkashi craft. Technique The technique of Tarkashi requires a high level of skill and meticulous attention to detail. The artisans begin by sketching the desired design on the seasoned wooden surface then shallow grooves are carved along the lines of the pattern using specialized tools like chisel and hammer. Brass or copper wires are carefully hammered gently into the wood following the contour of the design. After the metal wires are inlaid, the wooden surface is smoothed and polished to create a seamless finish.
