Kochi, Pt. 5

During our visit in Mattancherry, we went for lunch at the Ginger House restaurant. Adjacent and owned by the same person was a virtual warehouse of Indian antiques. We were given a private tour walking through room after room of various sorts of Indian sculpture, as well as some paintings and furnishings. Most depict various Hindu deities, but there are some old maps, doors, portraits of rulers, and of course lunch. Media include stone, plaster, metal, wood, fabric, etc. Here are some pix…

 

You may have seen how I’m often drawn to art & age. Here’s a combination: old moldy murals on a wall in Kochi…

Here are a few more pix of our various visits hereabouts. Another great meal on a banana leaf, a couple getting wedding photos at M.G. beach, sculptures, structures, and kids at a nice park/playground in Ernakulum, the Shiva Temple near there, inside the ferry going to/from, the crew in a tuktuk, a colonial church, groovy watering hole, and selfie with artist. Enjoy…

 

Study Questions:

  1. Research Indian religions, Indian mythology, Hindu symbolism, etc. Find one deity, symbol, or image similar to those above and write about it.
  2. Research Indian artists and artisans, their media and methods, and write about them.
