Baiga Tribal Bracelet
Baigas, a tribe that believes that they are direct descendants of the tiger, are no less interesting or magnificent than the cat itself. Thriving in the forests of the Central Highlands, Baigas are a community with a treasure box of skill sets that are yet to be discovered. Among many of their known skill sets is their art of producing beautiful jewelry that is worn by the women in the village. Worn mostly during festivities like marriage, the jewelry is set in various patterns and is usually colorful in nature. This piece of jewelry is made of what is locally known as ‘Moti dana’ (beads in the chain like formation) and these ingredients are said to be central to their jewelry.
