Clip 1: A Royal Perspective on “Peacock in the Desert:” Shivranjani Rajye
The Maharaja’s Favorites From “Peacock in The Desert”
The Maharaja Tells The Story of “Peacock in the Desert”
Exhibit at SAM Oct 2018 – January 21, 2019 – A series of short videos produced for the Seattle Art Museum in connection with the traveling exhibit Peacock in the Desert: The Royal Arts of Jodhpur, India. The videos are based on interviews conducted with the Maharaja GajSingh II of Marwar-Jodhpur and his daughter Princess Baijilal Shivranjani Rajye, who were in Seattle for the exhibit.
I also enjoyed giving a ‘my fav (or not) things’ tour at opening night of the exhibit. And t
There are many historic pieces in the show, including one of the last surviving Mughal tents, Lal Dera used by Shah Jahan. The exhibit provides a glimpse of the history of interactions between Mughal and Rajput kingdoms. Definitely worth the time to check it out.
