Meenakari, or the art of decorating metal by enamelling it, was introduced in India by the Mughals. Raja Man Singh of Amber introduced the art to Rajasthan at the turn of the 16th century, and since then the state has been the hub of meenakari work, mostly used in jewellery. Various aspects of meenakari have been explored by Blue Bird International, who are manufacturer-exporters of enamelled silver artifacts, wall hangings, handmade carpets and home décor products from India. The company has taken the diminishing art of meenakari and created silver birds enamelled with beautiful colours. This limited edition series will now be shown at their newly opened showroom in Connaught Place; it is also available online at http://www.bluebirdinternationalindia.com/bird/page2.htm.
