Regular price Rs. 1,450.00

Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

Rogan art is a 400 year old craft and is practiced by only one family in India - the Khatri Family. The base of the paint is castor oil, and it's what gives the art its name — Rogan means oil in Farsi. The oil is heated over a fire for two days until it becomes a honey-like texture. Then, it's combined with crushed pigment to create the paint.

This masterpiece is made by Abdul Gaffar, winner of the Padma Shri. Prime Minister Modi has also gifted a couple of Gaffar's exquisite handcrafted Rogan paintings to the US president, Barack Obama.
