Clay artists organize exhibition at IGRMS

Bhopal: In order to make the exhibition more visible to the visitors, Indira Gandhi National Museum, Bhopal, a team of six skilled clay artists from Manipur led by Mr. Nobin Singh and Mr. L Ibomcha Meitei organized an intimate exhibition in the gallery complex of the museum. Work is being done to make 3D isometric map and signage in the building. In this regard, Mr. Nobin Singh said that ‘isometric’ means ‘same measurement’. Isometric drawings are different from other types of axonometric drawings. In an isometric drawing, the object appears as if it were viewed from above from a corner, with the axes pointing out from a corner point. Isometric drawings start with a vertical line along which two points are defined. In an isometric projection a perfect cube will look like a perfect hexagon. Since all the edges of a isometric object are inclined at the same angle, they are shortened equally. We first carefully molded the clay. It is shaped into intricate replicas of the museum’s layout and the signage symbols and letters are carefully crafted. Museum Associate Mr. N. Sakmacha Singh said that these clay idols have been associated with the museum for a long time. He has contributed in the construction of North East India Gallery and Ethnic Music Gallery.
