Painting of an audience with a Mughal Emperor with

Paper Mache is a delicate decorative art, born in Persia and brought to Kashmir
by a Prince who spent years in a prison at Samarkand in Central Asia. The
surroundings harnessed the creativity and romance for this art and finally
Paper Mache took its roots in the simple homes and thus— a new art form was
born. Paper Mache became the folk art of Kashmir; passing down from father to
son, from generation to generation. Paper Mache involves two main steps:
‘Sakhtsazi’ is the actual production of the item and ‘Naqashi’ is when the item
is painted with any number of motifs.

Colors may slightly vary.
