Quick Overview

This stunning veena is among the most exquisite renditions of the famed Indian musical instrument. Created by an award winning artisan, this veena is the result of three months of strenuous effort.The intricate detailing covers every inch of this sandalwood masterpiece and mesmerises the viewer with its fluid patterns. Made entirely of sandalwood, the veena is crowned with a statuette of Saraswati, the Goddess of knowledge, music & the arts. A statuette of Ganesha sits just above the kudam or the resonator.The artisan has used the veena to tell us the story of Tansen, the legendary Indian Musician, who was one of the Navratnas or Nine Jewels of the Indian Emperor Akbar the Great's court. Depicted in the main window in the resonator of the veena is Tansen singing the raag Deepak. Legend holds that when Tansen would sing the raga Deepak, fires would erupt. The series of windows towards the right of the veena, open up to show various instances of Tansen's life. The first window depicts Tansen being taught music by his teacher, Sant Haridas. The second window captures the marriage of Tansen to Meherunnisa, the daughter of Emperor Akbar. The third window depicts the legendary musical competition that ensued when Baiju Bavra challenged Tansen, with Akbar listening. Both are considered to be among the greatest singers in Indian history. The competition was considered to be undecided as both singers were exceptional and no one could say who was better.
