The vast country of India and its magnificent diversity in cultures have amazed many in history and present. From the crowded centuries-old cities on the banks of mother Ganga, the Ganges river, to the lush rainforests and great harbour cities like Visakhapatnam. India has brought the world Hinduism and Buddhism, along with its many artistic outings in the form of sculpture, painting and everything that comes with it. Furniture and artefacts from the Coromandel Coast were and are still highly sought after and are possibly the most elaborate wood carved objects in the world, next to these from Sri Lanka. The latter country, like India, has a long history of influences from other countries and continents like Europe. This resulted in the absolute pinnacle of beauty in style, which we present here.
