Nice pictures! The Victoria horse driven carraige looks new. Very well maintained. The paintings look good.Thanks for the virtual tour.
Great pics!! Loved the one portraying Ganges being brought down to earth.
enjoyed this post...the copper boiler brought back memories of my childhood (my grandma had one)
Great exhibits, framed so well.
wow wow wow!!! Ram, these works are exquisite!! I've never even seen Indian art painted in that style (#12), I really need to make my way to India soon. Another terrific post, thanks so much for sharing your musings <3
The first photograph of the Victoria Memorial (National Arts Gallery) is superb. I could not get it this way. We could not see the exhibits you have photographed due to lack of time. The copper boiler seems to still in use in some tea shops in the remote part of Kerala.
Wow , lovely set of enlightening pictures ......
I would love to have some Indian art in my home. We'll see.
Lovely Collection SirSwamihttp://swamisblog.blogspot.com
What a beautiful photography...had a nice time viewing all of them ...thanks for sharing!
beautiful, historical treasures.
So many interesting exhibits. I especially like the Potter at Work, clay figurines, Mother and Child and Lady in deep thought paintings. Also the old museum building is beautiful.
Wonderful exhibits and excellent photography!The carvings, paintings, figurines, are made with that delicacy and talent that characterize indian people in general, and indian artists in particular. My favorite is the dancing goddess.
I will surely visit it when I go to Chennai. Thanks for these lovely shots!
The building itself looks grand. So I'm not surprised of its displays and artifacts.
Very interesting and beautiful photos!!!Many thanks for this photo-tour!!!Best regards
Nice exhibition of wonderful arts.... Its good you got the permission to shoot inside a museum... Most of the time it is not allowed and the moments cannot be captured or shared....
What many interesting photos you have provided!Most of them are new for me. The replica of a bullock cart is very beautiful.Have a great week.RedRose
I love seeing these pics of the museum...precious treasures

I enjoyed this sequence of shots from the museum very much.

Good collection! Yeah, sometimes the great heritage buildings are closed because they are unsafe! Hope it is being repaired!
Thanks everyone for your kind words.
