VANA | 2016

Flourishing through an abundance

of India’s Flora and Fauna, Ayurveda

has nurtured those in need of care for

thousands of years. Red Rose Cassia

is used to cure liver, Tulsi for common

cold and Jeera for its fever. Each shares

healing properties derived from either its

roots, leaf, fruit, bark or seed. Vana features

hand painted botanicals transferred digitally

to hand woven silk ; each appear to form their

own trellis , becoming a new version of

ornamental adornment and moreover

acknowledging their vital role in the cure of

our ailments.
