Painting Story of the Floating Desert: Contemporary Indian Miniatures from Jhalavad, India is currently on exhibit at CHAT (The Center for Humanities located on the 10th Floor of Gladfelter Hall). Also on display as a complement to this show are a number of models from south India belonging to the Anthropology Lab.
These pieces are from the Commercial Museum collection and may have been exhibited in the 1900 World’s Fair, the Exposition Universelle, in Paris, France. Both England and France had pavilions at the fair representing their colonies in India.
