Animals in India have always enjoyed a ceremonial and religious status. They are often depicted alongside gods and goddesses in the hindu mythology as vahana or vehicles (meaning carrier) who carry the divine. In the modern day they are featured playing a lead role in processions and festivals proudly embellishing vibrant colours and jewellery.
The series is a tribute to some of the celebrated animals across India and their significance in some of the Indian traditions. A modern day take on their depiction in carrying forward the rich traditions.
Be it the Nandi decorated for the harvest festival with colourful clothes and ornaments, or Elephant Arjuna playing the lead role in Mysore Dasara celebrations or Rajkumar the stallion decorated for the Pushkar festival, they play a very important role in carrying forward the culture in todays context
