A COLORFUL JHAROKA

                                         A vibrantly colorful Jharoka....   
I made this replica of a a Jharoka on a cut MDF board  with ceramic powder and fevicol.
For the bright colors ,I used Pearl and Metallic colors...



         A jharokha (or jharoka) is a type of overhanging enclosed balcony used in Indian architecture, typically Mughal architecture and Rajasthani architecture. Jharokhas jutting forward from the wall plane could be used both for adding to the architectural beauty of the building itself or for a specific purpose.

        One of the most important functions it served was to allow women in purdah to see the events outside without being seen themselves. Alternatively, these windows could also be used to position archers and spies.
