TAJ - AABH
Inspired by the Ghagra and Odhani of the festival of Navaratri – one of the most largely celebrated festivals in Ahmedabad, we customized a 35 feet metal sculpture for Hotel Taj. The designer draws inspiration from the folds created by the breathtaking Ghagras of the Gujarati women whilst dancing to the traditional music of Navaratri.
The 35 feet metal installation is designed to welcome guests and bring in the essence of the city of Ahmedabad. Being a two way sculpture it adorns the architectural facade of the hotel as well as the interiors.
The Abhla work that is peculiar to the garment is depicted by the spherical convex mirrors which reflect light and create unique illusions in the piece. The embroidery on the Ghagra is depicted by one lakh twenty thousand intricately hand sewn crystals.
Work in progress: Stay tuned, final images to be up soon!
