Lambani Art...

Creative lambani work with CYPRAEA sea shell key chains displayed outside Cauvery Crafts on MG Road. Their work is sought after by collectors for its vibrancy of pattern and colour, and for the unusual technique of sewing hundreds of small mirrors into the compositions. Each piece depicts an aspect of the Lambani creation myths.
