Enduring Splendor – Hanuman Soni & Jasraj Soni from Fowler Museum on Vimeo. The exhibition “Enduring Splendor: Jewelry of India’s Thar Desert” at the Fowler Museum explores the traditions of silver jewelry in India’s Thar Desert area. This region is vast, stretching across Gujarat and Rajasthan. This tradition is over five-thousand years.
