|Valluvar Kottam, Chennai|
We visited Craft Fair 2012 yesterday. It is at Valluvar Kottam, Nungambakkam, Chennai. We visit these types of fairs regularly. Whether we buy things or not, it is interesting to see the different arts and crafts from different parts of our country.
This time I was impressed by Sikki Grass art (the link is interesting!). Sikki grass is a type of grass. It is written there that the grass is 'vettiver'. But Vettiver in Tamil means a type of root! The artisan, Dhirendra Kumar, from Bihar is making beautiful things out of this grass. The grass is a sort of herb, he said. He has got a website here. He supplies to all the Art and Craft outlets here, in Chennai. He sells at reasonable rates, he says! Have a look at his handiwork:

I took photographs of other interesting galleries. I selected pictures of unusual arts:
The fair is there until 14th Oct. '12. Make a visit to this place. It is interesting.
