ART IN LIFE

What you’ll find at the Anjali Jewellers corner...

About 500 gold pieces and 90 costume items, with the design board packing everything from rural Bengal to tribal motifs and traditional styles.

How has rural Bengal made an entry? You only have to take a look at the gamchha-pyanch bala to know. “The pattern recreated on the bangle is drawn from the wringing of the gamchha. It is a very old design,” said Anargha Chowdhury, director, Anjali Jewellers. “This collection reflects the eclectic taste of Bengal. A lot of the pieces are brand new... things we have never showcased before. The pieces have been created keeping in mind that these are heirlooms, signature pieces. Each piece has taken more than a month to craft and for us, each piece is special. More so because it is being exhibited at CIMA.... Art in Life is a fabulous exhibition and I feel that if you don’t visit Art in Life every year, you are really missing out on something grand in Calcutta! It is a fantastic place to be at,” he added.
