Sanskriti Foundation has added new artefacts to its collection. And to mark 35 years of its creative journey, the cultural organisation is showcasing these art pieces in its exhibition of new acquisitions and select objects from the reserve collections, which O.P.Jain has been building painstakingly over the years. Though collected long time back, the organisation has never exhibited these pieces.

For instance, there will be a rare collection of leather puppets from various shadow puppet traditions of Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Kerala and Indonesia at Sanskriti Kendra’s new multi-purpose hall and art gallery. The bouquet also comprises exquisite Jain Temple paintings and Indian terracotta.A range of temple hangings of the Digambara Jain sect embroidered in zari is one of the 15 panels which will be on display. Representing the early 20th Century Gujarati Jain temple embroideries, it is a unique work. Votive figures from Central and South Gujarat, Manasa Jhar and long-necked terracottas from Bankura, West Bengal, are also there. And not just Indonesian puppets, but the viewers will also be able to see some fine fabrics from Indonesia like ikat.
