thanks 4 sharing; hearing about this art 4 the 1st time.
Thank you so much. I am till waiting for response from correct person, who knows about this. RantI heard that Karnataka people keep this for their wedding. :coffee for some good response from them. And also searching in net. One day or other I will surely get that.:yes:
This is anew art i havent heard before, i am not able to see the picture too bcoz of i am to this forum...
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.
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.
Abt the coconut drawing was really very impressive & even the phote sent by Krish was good.
Any idea where can it b done in Bangalore. Hope to get a reply.
Thanks Nags abt the information from where to get the dry coconut craving.
Hope you find one easily.
