Ananta Fine Arts- Heaven for Handicraft lovers

You have already read about Gudigargalli-Kumta in my previous posts:
A visit to a handicraft shop in Gudigaragalli .And in the last post about the shop  Ananta Fine Arts, which has a vast collections of artifacts.
 I could not share all the details in a single post, hence continuing in this post.
 The artists of Ananta Fine Arts make excellent Chariots.It won't be exaggerated if I write "Most of the Hindu temples of coastal Karnataka and Goa have the Chariots made by  them".
You will definitely agree with me by seeing these:






They are good in stone sculptures :

You will love these eye catching clay statues. 



This post will be incomplete, if I don't write about the legend behind the art, Late Shri Shamba Shet.He had got many awards and appreciations from all over the world. Few glimpses are here:


Have a look at the carved portraits of Smt. Indira Gandhi and Shri Rajiv Gandhi
Now the next generation is taking the art forward.
There are many artists and shops of handicrafts in this street.
 I'm proud of the artists "Gudigararu".

I could not post all the photos here. You can visit this link to see the magnificant works of handicrafts.

Love , laugh and live the life to the fullest,
