Ghanshyam is an inmate in Central Jail, Jaipur and learned the art of weaving as a part of the prisoners’ rehabilitation program. He has experience in weaving production carpets when the program first started, and used that expertise to weave a wide array of patterns in Manchahas. Intelligent yet playful, he enjoys working hard for something and seeing the final result bloom. He is in his 40’s and feels that Manchaha has been his liberation to the difficult events that resulted in his incarceration.
Tikona
‘Tikona’ means triangle, and it is what Ghanshyam uses to express the patterns on his rug. He attempted to explore the creative limits of a triangle, weaving small and large patterns that all branch in or branch out. The wide array of patterns is mesmerizing to the onlooker and uses the triangle ironically to the rectangular rug. He also shares that on his mind at the loom over the two months it took to weave this Manchaha was the Hindu god Shiv, who according to mythology is the one who looks after the disparaged. He says, “I felt shattered to be in prison, but Shiv took me under his protection and gave me an opportunity to work and find my redemption.”.
