SEWA Hansiba Museum

An Ahir home at night. The doors and windows are adorned with torans on the top, and on the sides with auspicious symbols and motifs from nature. The elephant-headed God Ganesha welcomes the visitor and removes obstacles; peacocks and parrots are familiar friends in the dry landscape, while the scorpion is hazard best kept at a respectful distance. Trees and flowers, cows and milkmaids are all signs of plenty. The women express their realities, their fears and their aspirations in their embroidery.
