"Exquisitely hand painted set of 5 'Mela' Wall Plates depicting the beautiful 'Phad Art' of Rajasthan.

Size(diameter)of each plate : 10 inches .

Mela is a Sanskrit word meaning 'gathering' or 'to meet' or a 'fair'. It is used in the Indian subcontinent for all sizes of gatherings and can be religious, commercial, cultural or sport-related. In rural traditions melas or village fairs were (and in some cases still are) of great importance. This led to their export around the world by south Asian diaspora communities wishing to bring something of that tradition to their new countries.

Phad painting or phad is a style religious scroll painting and folk painting, practiced in Rajasthan state of India. This style of painting is traditionally done on a long piece of cloth or canvas, known as phad.

For all the wall plates, organic paint has been used to colour them. These colours have a matt texture, and may bleed if they come in contact with liquid. Hence, buyers are strongly advised not to wipe plates with a wet cloth. All plates should be lightly dusted.These should not be used to serve food, they are to be hung on walls for purely decorative purpose only. All plates are wall hanging and come with an attached fixture at the back.
Although all efforts are made to create identical plates to that of the images published on the website, there could be minor shade differences, as all plates are individually hand crafted and painted when an order is placed."
