Overview

This rich treasury of traditional designs, developed by Indian artists over thousands of years, contains motifs distinguished by their intricacy and fanciful nature. More than 200 black-and-white illustrations have been adapted by Marty Noble from a diverse array of authentic sources, including ancient pottery, mosaics, and illuminated manuscripts as well as more recently created embroideries and fabrics.
Here are finely detailed examples of Rangoli art (complex ritual motifs used to decorate courtyards, floors, and walls of Indian houses); details from fresco paintings; stencil designs; patterns from jewelry; tattoos; architectural décor and metalwork; and designs in wood and ivory.
Perfect for artistic and design inspiration, these striking, royalty-free motifs can be easily adapted for use in textiles and wallpaper, in furniture design, and in a host of other art and craft projects.
