Our Gift of the week this week! We started with our herd of elephants since elephants are considered a good luck charm and a good omen for new beginnings in Indian culture. Gift this cushion cover to your beloved grandparents who you haven't been able to hug for a long time!
A truly unique piece of home décor, our “Herd of Elephants” cushion cover in the pantone colour of the year - Living Coral is part of our Santosh Maravi collection. Santosh is an emerging Gond artist. We did a fascinating interview with him, which you can read here. Santosh creates imagery with incredibly powerful stories behind them.
We fell in love with not just his work, but also the thoughts behind them, which are so relevant in today’s world. If you are an art enthusiast who is also passionate about the environment and the impact we are having on it as humans, this collection is for you.
Our “Herd of Elephants” cushion cover shows the normally happy herd of Elephants taking some drastic steps to save their home. They think of carrying the forest with them so that they do not need to keep moving as forests are destroyed by humans. They believe that by simply carrying their home with them, they would not be harassed by humans and can live happily. The back of the cover has this story printed on it as a reminder to all of us about the impact we are having on nature.
