Adult Colouring Book – Gond Art (22.96€)
Adult colouring books are all the rage and rightfully so. They encourage us to switch off our screens and practice mindfulness - specially in these times of lockdowns. This colouring book is specially unique since the drawings in there are by Gond Artist – Venkat Raman Singh Shyam. The author of Finding my Way. We have featured him before in our articles here & here.
Give your loved ones a chance to lose themselves in the mesmerizing world of Chachan birds, the Katheli tree, snakes, animals, and plants created by Venkat Shyam.
An Art inspired gift list will be incomplete without a piece of art itself. This piece called “Living Together” by Santosh Maravi should give a beautiful message of harmony to your other half. You could use this to also hint to something more :)
