Artist's description:

Ink and watercolour drawing of the ruins around Qutab Minar, New Delhi, India.

Context; At appx. 120 meters, this is the tallest brick minaret in the world, and along with the ancient and medieval monuments surrounding it, forms the Qutb Complex, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The Minar (Tower) is made of dark red sandstone covered with intricate carvings and verses from the holy book. The first three storeys are made of red sandstone; the fourth and fifth and sixth storeys are of marble and sandstone, and have fluted bands. The tower is tilting a little now, and visitors are not allowed up the tower, which is a shame because the views are magnificent. The rays streaming at sunset and the ruins around it creates a beautiful calming meditative environment, a peaceful haven in the midst of the hustle and bustle of Delhi.

I made this drawing from my photographs taken on a visit to Delhi last year, and this is done on heavyweight postcard sized watercolour paper, with inks, pens and watercolour. It will be signed, titled and dated at the back. I will send this wrapped beautifully and packaged in reinforced envelope so that it arrives safely without any damage. If you would like information pertaining to the history of this monument, I will be happy to send you an accompanying leaflet.

Will be ideal as a gift or start a collection of miniature art for your own home. I have other postcard sized art in my store inspired by my other travels. These could be framed together to create a composite image, and I will be happy to make suggestions. Or, if you would like a framed one, please message me to discuss. I will also be able to make accommodations to shipping so please do not hesitate to contact me.

Many thanks for visiting again!
