Indian Patterns Again




Three more photos from this large collection of Victorian albumen print photos. I believe these amazingly intricate doors, inlaid with carved ivory panels are from the Amber (Amba) Palace in Jaipur.
The ruined gateway covered in patterns which join Indian and Muslim traditions is at Qutb Minar in Dehli.

There's something fantastically surreal about that first image.
