ft.
A woman of substance and an artist now, Sundari Devi never had an easy childhood. Her father, being an extremely poor man, could not afford to give her the education she so badly wanted. Being the elder one she stayed at home taking care of her younger siblings while her father went out to work. Married into a very poor family early on in life Sundari’s life has been consistently a test of perseverance. She started weaving rugs to improve her life state and that of her family. While her husband’s income is not sufficient to fuel her dream of educating her 4 children, Sundari Devi weaves rugs to make this dream come true.
Anar

Sundari Devi has taken inspiration for this rug from Diwali which is the festival of lights celebrated in India. It is one of India's biggest festivals celebrated with family and friends. Sundari has woven door like patterns in the center of the rug which signifies her hospitality. Since Diwali involves decoration with lights, shopping, fireworks, gifts, sweets etc, each of these elements have been represented on the rug. During this festival, Anar, a typical firework fountain is used for its sparkling display and showers of coloured sparks. An illustration of this Anar can be seen towards the top of the rug.

To the owner of the rug
“May this rug let the goodness in you always triumph”
