Today, small Sanjhi stencils can be seen at most Craft Melas and there are some amazing possibilities of a piece of Sanjhi brightening up a room in a modern home today.
If you’re the DIY kind, buy yourself a piece that you love – a scene from Krishna’s childhood, or the famous “Tree of Life” or even an animal motif – and press it between two pieces of glass.
Either display the framed piece as it is, or be more creative about it. Make it the top of a coffee table, or a single door of a cupboard. Have it made into a lampshade or a large room divider and you’ll be amazed at how beautifully the light and shadows jazz up a room!
