Art and Architecture are two indivisible aspects of designing. As a design enthusiast we will get some peeps back through historic architecture of the India and world as well as its modern day presence. We will imbibe in us the inherent charm and beauty of the traditional dwellings and learn their wise old techniques of sustainable designs.

"The soul of India lives in its villages."

- Mahatma Gandhi

Yes, the roots of our unique literature, paintings, miniatures, handcraft or tribal art lies in our villages. Folk art defines our cultural heritage and we will celebrate them all by simply incorporating them into our lives. Our homes are sacred places and so our folk heritage. Join us to keep them alive.

THE NAME “Obsidian” ?

Our blog’s name is inspired from the beautiful obsidian stone. Its an igneous rock and thus shares an unbound relationship with the Earth. This motivates us to make this obsidian space a place to pamper our relationship with Mother Earth. With all the positive obsidian vibes I wish my readers a “Happy Obsidian Space”.

HELLO !

I’m Shruti, a content writer with a knack of arts and aesthetics. This is my space to showcase my love for folk culture and heritage architecture. Join me and enjoy this journey of appreciating our global heritage.

  • “MANDANA”- A DYING INDIAN ART
    Mandana art is one of the oldest surviving tribal art of India. Mandana is a name given to the paintings done on wall and floor by the women of Meenas community of Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan. Mandana are drawn to draw health and to protect the house and family from evil and welcoming gods into the house. The art is auspicious and treated as a mark of celebrations on festive occasions. Mandana is derived from the word “Mandan”, meaning decoration and beautification. Historically, they have been practiced as a way of decorating ones home at the time of festivals, religious ceremonies, marriage functions and other auspicious ceremonies. The simplicity of a Mandana lies in its two colors – often red and white. The use of natural and eco-friendly materials in the art speaks about the harmonious balance between our traditions and mother nature.
  • “KOLAM”-ART FROM SOUTH INDIA
    Kolam, is an age-old floor art form originated in Tamil Nadu becoming an integral part of South Indian culture. Kolam is a symmetrical design often drawn around grid patterns of dots on the floor with rice flour. The kolam patterns are often passed on from generation to generation and women are so skilled that these patterns are drawn by bare fingers, really quickly barely making any mistakes. Kolam follows complex concepts of mathematics like symmetry and permutation. Every dot and curve is calculated offering scope for intricacy, complexity and creativity of high order.
