I took this picture in the palace of Sawantwadi. There is also a museum in the palace.
There are a few artists here who work for a living. The hand painted playing cards are called Ganjifa's. The Ganjifa and the other paintings on display in this picture were painted by a artist Mr. Kulkarni who was around 70 yrs old and has being painting in the palace since last 40 years. Other than the cards the individual painting costs around 1 to 3 Dollars per piece.
