Three-Dimensional Collages of Stone and Plaster in India

In India, many of the buildings and other structures appeared to be three-dimensional collages.

Plaster and mirror ‘collage’ in the Amber Palace just outside of Jaipur. If I was trying to do a painting of this I would definitely use collage.Mirrors in Decorative Plaster at Amber PalaceEven more fascinating were the ‘collages’ of stone in the walls of Chittor palace. The arrangements were often asymmetrical and often appeared to be stuck in wherever they would fit.
