Hey there, as promised in earlier post For the Love of Brass & Bronze, here I am starting the first store tour of the series.
Manjunatha Fine Arts - is one of the finest shops dealing with brass, bronze, wooden artifacts. It is tucked in one of the by-lanes near Jayanagar 4th block complex, Bangalore. It is a treat to collector's eyes & heart *Smile*. Do not get fooled by the size of the shop! The treasure trove in there and is beautiful! Here is a peek into the shop...
The owner Manjunath Raikar, started Manjunatha Fine arts in 1969, who then was working in government handicraft division. He started with Sandalwood carvings and statues. Later moved on to brass, bronze and wooden carving due to decline of artisans working on sandalwood.
