First developed for the Vishwakarma series of exhibitions, this textile speaks to the Art Deco Movement popular between the 1920’s and 1930s. Art Deco typically references stylized decorative elements, such as chevrons, sunburst motifs, and stylized floral patterns. Here the traditional parrot is “streamlined” and includes stylised decorative panels. In India textiles travel and are accepted among different regions irrespective of the linguistic and cultural divisions. This saree designed to facilitate a Venkatagiri aesthetic of parrot, placed at the end of palla, while leaving the field plain,  has been hybridised in Benaras within an Art Deco vocabulary.
