I have a natural disposition towards Indian craftsmanship of old. To be honest its not just the Indian craftsmanship but that of most of Asia from China to Northern Africa. The detail sucks me in, grabs my attention, cues me psychologically to becoming peaceful and calm.
I guess its something to do with it reflecting the intricacy within nature for as a child I could spend hours watching the movement of a tree leaves, or stare at the fineness of a birds feathers.
Some images here from the web which I would hope to develop into a design for someone in the future.
