Nagaland is an important part of the colorful culture of India.
The forests of Nagaland are rich in bamboo and cane. Thus, naturally they are expert craftsmen in cane and bamboo.
Split bamboo is the usual material used for mats baskets and decorative materials. There are various stages involved in the preparation of decorative items and other cane goods.
It begins in the collection of raw materials from the forest, making splints of necessary sizes, weaving of the perimeters and finally giving the finishing touches.
They are designed with painted stylized floral patterns or with human figures done in relief, greatly enhancing the shape and the texture of the articles.
In Nagaland, the bamboo pipe is popular. In general, it has been rightly said that Nagas start life “ in a cradle of bamboo and ends in a coffin of bamboo”.
A group of artist had visited the state of Punjab in the fag end of September 2012, with their marvelous arts and craft items.

C'est une très belle composition, très bons effets des couleurs et de la lumière sur ces objets artisanaux.

From your comments, it would appear that these were made with bamboo, they look so delicate and fragile. Wonderful catch with colors and focus as well as positioning. An artistic shot of artistic content. Both great!

You're capturing well this art work by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the technical work of a flower made from the bamboo. It's so beautiful combination for pink, green and blue flower. It's a good work by art craftman. And, the blurred image in back draws out well these flowers. Poetic note!

Colours can speak for itself, especially when they are vibrant and bold as in your case. I love the blurred BG with pastel colour hues. Well done

Much subtlety seen here on behalf of the artist and of course, on your behalf for showing those fine flowers over an unobtrusive backdrop wich colors suit well to the finery at foreground!

This is a very artistic way to show these crafts. The colors are definitely beautiful, and your depth of field allows for a lovely blend of bright colors in the foreground, and a kaleidoscope of blurred ones behind. The work itself looks very intricate and delicate.
