Rajasthan is rich in both, natural resources such as stones and minerals, and in artists who can shape these riches into beautiful craft pieces. Marble craft objects have been carved here since the times of the Mughals. Rajasthani craftsmen use fine marble to create an infinite variety of utilitarian and ornamental art. The forms are painted, embossed and studded with natural pigments mixed with stone and glue, with semi precious stones and often even with gold and silver. Traditional Rajasthani motifs such as flowers, trees, elephants, horses, deers and peacocks feature on these objects in increasingly vivid colors such as red, gold, black, blue, green and yellow. The fine white surface of marble serves as ideal backdrop for ornamentation. Marble objects, besides being beautiful also have a very long life. Elements of Meenakari, miniature painting and Mughal carving all come together to influence marble craft in Rajasthan.
