At JADE by Monica and Karishma we strive to amalgamate inspirations from our ancient historic jewels with modern day luxury. Our search for some inspiration led us to the world heritage sites Ajanta and Ellora located in Aurangabad, Maharashtra.
Our rummage through the glorious history of Aurangabad’s heritage has left us awestruck! The spell-binding beauty of Bibi-ka-Maqbara, the exquisite cave paintings in Ajanta Ellora, the Soneri Mahal and Pithakhora has convinced us that the plethora of magnificent aura has been around since like forever.
Strategically placed on the Deccan plateau this city is undoubtedly the land of plentiful. Aurangabad is heading towards rapid industrial growth, but it retains the nostalgic memories from its glorious past.
The Ajanta and Ellora caves situated in Aurangabad exhibit incredible murals and paintings molded into them that reflect the magic of Tantric Hinduism. The subtle yet striking color palettes that can be seen murals in dense caves of Ellora have been major inspirations behind JADE’s surreal ensembles.
The stunning cave paintings and stone carvings in Ajanta and Ellora mark the changing fortunes of three major religions Buddhism, Hinduism and Jainism between the 5th and the 10th century CE. The unique and breathtaking cave paintings have drawn visitors from all over the world making it one of the most visited places in Maharashtra.
The rock-cut masterpieces in Kailasha, Ellora remind us of the dedication and skills of the craftsmen of that century. Like the mesmerizing murals at Ajanta-Ellora a JADE ensemble too is created with Avant-Garde perfection! The mood and grandeur exhibited by these caves have set tones for exquisite JADE collection.
The abundance of cultural wealth cumulated in India continues to enthrall us! Our maneuvers have led us to explore desolate areas of art. At JADE our search for unique styles have led us to explore newer dimensions of our very own Jade masterpieces!
