Exquisite Carving

Post by westsea » Sat Oct 18, 2014 12:45 am

I ordered a fully carved, teak, traditional Rudra Veena from Saraswati Tantuvadya Kendra (Altab).
Maqsood sent me some photos of the toombas.

This is the best carving I've ever seen.

Creative license means ...

...starting in Sanskrit and drifting on to Urdu or invoking the memories of heat latent in an afternoon raaga in the depths of the winter chill ... and letting a machine play theka once in a while.

a frosty little ditty : :roll: :oops:
