The Jindal Steel Works, Bellary.Tuesday, August 07, 2007
Neat, completely pretty & impressive in bits, this was JSWs Guest house equivalent where they put up their business associates.
Urns used as part of the landscaping design. Also called 'Urli' this is an integral feature in South Indian Art and decor. Urlis are actually vessels in which they used to cook food in ancient times.
'Urli' with floating flowers. The black granite flooring is reflective.
An interesting bust. Headless. Armless. Interesting nevertheless.
The Indonesian (? im not sure) statue during the day.
And at night.
Isnt that piece on the wall magical? I've not really been able to get it out of my head.On the left is the entrance to the dining hall.
I liked the way they've mounted the wall art- Black and white images of Hampi - on the brick red wall. And recently in the film 'Cheeni Kum's (Tabu's Delhi home's) terrace scene they've done the reverse. Off-white wall & black and white gandhi & nehru's pics framed in brick red patches. It looked really good.
It was early. The lights in the Hall were still on & so was morning light.
I love the geometric shadows cast by the beams. It just looked so dramatic.
