Sanjhi: The Art of Paper-Cutting

I was offered a short Sanjhi Residency at Sanskriti Kendra in Delhi. It was extremely difficult to cut with scissors that were smaller than the palm of my hand! These are some of the things I worked on while I was there.

My first Sanjhi butterfly!

Paper parrot shadow left behind, after cutting the final piece for a mirror frame. The beaks were the toughest to cut

Unfortunately the only image I have of the mirror frame made from the Parrot Composition
