About the Artwork

This is a popular dreaming story of a group of sisters being chased through the desert by one man. There are numerous scenarios as the women travel around, chased by Wati Nyiru. Land forms were created as they all travelled though the countryside Eventually they rose up into the sky and form the Pleiades, a cluster of stars seen in the southern skies. There are many variations of this story, each language group has it’s own chapters that relate to the landscape in their own country.

About the Handicraft - Kar-e-Kalamdani

Kar-e-Kalamdani is the local name for paper mache, a Kashmiri cottage industry introduced to the Kashmir valley in the 15th century by the Moghul prince Zain-ul-Abadin, along with a number of other Persian crafts. There are many steps in the process: making pulp from recycled paper, molding and finishing the shapes, hand painting (naqqashi) and varnishing.
