REVIEW FOR KARNATAKA HANDICRAFTS EXHIBITION
Stuff that would have invited a look of mild appreciation without a desire to possess is now back in the spotlight. Handicrafts have regained their lost appeal in the hearts of the people. To cash in on the present trend, the Karnataka State Development Corporation is holding an exhibition of its handicrafts at the Cauvery Arts and Crafts Emporium. A discount of 10% is also offered on all the items.

An exhibition of Karnataka Handicrafts must include Sandalwood in one form or the other. It has always been in demand worldwide, if Mr Veerappan's successful career is any indication. The exhibition has a variety of Sandalwood products, from Sandalwood pens to idols of Gods and Goddesses. The pens and paper knives range between Rs 150 and Rs 200, while the carved Sandalwood walking sticks cost somewhere between Rs 500 and Rs 2,000. The exquisitely carved jewel boxes start off at Rs 900 and go on to Rs 4,000.The figures of Gods and Goddesses vary in price (Rs 500 to 25,000), depending on their intricacy of the craftsmanship. Billets of Sandalwood (raw sandalwood used time and again in rituals) are available at Rs 1,200 per Kilogram. Apart from these, Sandalwood oil, extensively used in medicine and pujas, is also available in its purest form here.

Rosewood, widely used to make artistic furniture, is another attraction of this exhibition. But everyone may not exactly appreciate the price. Sofa sets (Rs 50,000-94,000), dining sets (Rs 1,30,000-1,50,000), corner tables (Rs 13,000) and diwans (Rs 35,000-60,000) to name a few, are also available here.

Mysore Silk sarees, a must in every woman's wardrobe, range between Rs 2,000 and Rs 4,000. Apart from this, pure Mysore Silk ties and scarves, which exhibit a good taste in the art of dressing, are available in the exhibition within a range of Rs 500 to Rs 1,000.

Paper knives (Rs 35), boxes (Rs 110-2,000), flower vases (Rs 200-9,000), all exclusive Bidri handicrafts, are also a part of this exhibition. Bronze and Black metal (copper oxidized) idols of gods and goddesses also find a prominent place here.

Agarbattis, a must buy for every Indian home, are available in sandalwood, rose and halmeddi fragrances, for a price anywhere between Rs 13 to Rs 120. Perfumes, in typically Indian fragrances, like sandalwood, rose, jasmine and mogra, range between Rs 34 and 200.

Though all the prices may not suit every pocket, it should still attract buyers since it is all under one roof. Please contact 781-0604 for further details.
