A jali window (or jaali) is the term for a perforated stone or latticed screen, with an ornamental calligraphy or geometry pattern. Early work was performed by carving into stone, later the Mughals used marble and semi-precious stones to create inlaid patterns.
Typical in Islamic architecture as well as in Indian architecture, this particular etching was derived from a small screen window in the Maharaja’s seven- storey palace in Jaisalmer.
The pattern and range of colours in the window series makes it ideally suited to bespoke commissions,
and to complementing interior design schemes.The proportions of triptych’s work well over dining tables, sofas and beds particularly,
