Amrapali Museum is an initiative by the founders of Amrapali Jewels. The museum is dedicated to Indian jewellery and jewelled objects, located in the city of Jaipur. For the founders, the collection has been a labour of love that began nearly forty years ago when they became friends at college, and that continues to this day.
The book ‘The Adornment of Gods’ by Devdutt Pattanaik chronicles around the deep relation between India’s mythology and her jewelled arts through the Amrapali Museum collection. The book curates fifty impeccable antiques and their stories narrated by Devdutt Pattanaik from the collection of Amrapali Museum. From the five elements that have wrought creation, to the subcontinent’s myriad gods and goddesses, our plentiful flora and fauna, to objects intrinsic to religious rites and rituals, votive offerings, jewellery and decorative objects, this book covers a vast narrative that no single thread could otherwise hold.
