The crafted masterpiece portrays the replica of the famous artwork ‘Lady Musicians’ by the great Indian painter Raja Ravi Verma.
 
The 11 painting series, woven on the saree, feature every small detail of the renowned women choir illustration, right from the curly hair of the ladies to the jewels they are wearing.
 
The saree took nearly seven months to make and was designed by around 30 handloom weavers.
