Bidri crafts

A bottle roughly one and half feet in height with this detail on an average takes a month to complete. I could show you the bottle but chose to concentrate on the intricacy instead. The bottle still needs to be painted. On completion would cost Rs. 10,000. The artist, Mr Ghanshyam Yadavhas been working on this art form since 1968 and is said to have received a national level award for his works.

More on the art form at wiki, as usual.
