Inspired by the architecture of the Moghul Era, with its cylindrical minarets, the Taali clothes hanger, has ribbed ends, to allow for hangers, and clothes to rest without falling off. The tips of the Taal have been embedded with a semi-precious gem ‘Aqeeq’ or Carnelian stone, believed to be symbolic in protecting individuals!
Lacquered wood Technique
Turned wood ornamented with coloured lacquer. Very little painting on wood is now done, and the lacquer surface obtained by pressing what is virtually a stick of coloured sealing-wax on an object revolving in the lathe is a harder and more solid covering than any paint. The heat developed by friction melts the lacquer. Further friction with the dry stem of a palm-leaf, held endwise, and a final application of an oiled rag of muslin, polish a coat of colour which resists dust, the great heat of the hot weather, and the damp of the rains. But there are many refinements in this most simple art.
