Rangabaiji, Decorative Wall Painting ( Usta Work)

Bikaner has an old tradition of ornate, floral wall and ceiling painting. The raised work with gold ornamentation is known as sunahari munnawati nakkashi and plain painting is described as Rangabaiji. The scrolling creepers and floral work done on the walls of this private living room is in the latter idiom. Lime plaster is the most suitable surface for this work.
