    Hi Krishnamma,

    I dont know if this reply is coming very late to you.

    This is called kobbari gituku kettane (dry coconut carving). This is availabe in shops in Bangalore in almost all areas where the pooja items are sold. These shops are called Grandige angadi.
    The famous one is in Gandhi bazaar (basavanagudi), shop name is Satish Stores. This also availabe in shops of Malleswaram which is also famous to hold such items, but I dont know any particular shops.
    I even know personally one of my teacher who does this work art/craft, who is also in Gandhi bazaar. I guess you would get in Cauvery Emporium also.

    Hi Krishnamma,
    It is a nice art you have introduced. The pictures were really very good.
    Since many of my cousins live in b'lore I have got an opportunity to try my hand at it too during their weddings. It used to be great fun. I remember once when the name of the groom did not come out well we simple decorated the name with sequins (chamkis) with pins. Since the background was white coloured sequins looked very good on them.
    By the time I got married (20 yrs ago) my cousins got it done professionally & was greatly appreciated by my DH & In- laws.
