INSPIRATION

INDIAN ORIGIN

HAWKER ON FOOT

The imaginative power of hawkers like this who hang huge colourful decorative pieces on their bodies astonishes Sen. It reveals to him how they know the technique of keeping their own clothing sober so as to create a huge colourful selling impact as they walk along the streets. These are all decorative wall hangings to be used in homes and temples, or on festive occasions they will be adorned on elephants and cows. Sen admires the resourceful approach of this hawker on foot, and how he catches the attention of diverse people on the street to buy highly colourful objects that are quite outside their basic daily requirement.
