The one-of-a-kind map, created like a massive jigsaw puzzle, highlights the iconic landmarks of the country. Each state on the artisanal map bursts with majestic monuments & landmarks. While Rajasthan flaunts its many forts, Gujarat is represented as a lion, and so on. Deep blue, green, yellow, pink, and brown are used to visually bifurcate state borders while a series of rivers flow from one state to another throughout the map.

Each piece of the puzzle was created and rendered in isolation. We used copper enameling - a traditional artisanal craft that involves meticulously placing wires and fusing powdered glass on the copper surface. Baaya worked with the last traditional copper enameling family in Maharashtra to handcraft this. When assembled, the 12 by 11 ft mural exceeded every expectation. We worked in harmony, fusing unlikely craft forms, to achieve the feat. The project was conceptualized and implemented by Baaya Design under the conceptual framework provided by Urban Zen.
