Shopping For Bird Art In India

There’s no shortage of handicraft and antique shops in India and the good news for bird lovers is that many works of art feature birds!  Some of these are for sale (the ones in shops), others I saw in hotels and restaurants and they were not for sale.  I bought that saree!  I don’t get to wear it often but it sure is beautiful!  Here’s a few examples of bird art found in India.

I was hoping to find a video of how these are made as they are pretty cool!  Although this video shows a close up of a “pregnant” elephant, I bought one of a “pregnant” parrot  from the shop in the 2nd photo.
