New Delhi: The soft contours of Mumtaz Jahan's face, the colourful shades of the chrysanthemum, the sharp strokes depicting a bejewelled tribal woman, no, these aren't brush strokes on canvas, but art captured on carpets!

An initiative by People for Animals (PFA), Kingfisher and Sunil Sethi, President of Fashion Design Council of India, the exhibition, titled "Fly A Carpet to Your Wall," features select art works by renowned Indian artists S H Raza, M F Husain among others as hand woven designer carpets.

"Every year PFA puts together a new and interesting art event. This time we have translated works by India's top painters and designers into a spectacular collection of carpets which are on offer from as little as Rs 35,000. The idea is to make the art not just enjoyable but affordable as well," said Maneka Gandhi who heads PFA.
