Q. What do you mean by 'antiquated'? Are they antiques? Do you deal in antiques?

A. The Government of India does not allow for the sale of any article more than 100 years old outside India. We do not deal in antiques. The antiquated artworks are artworks which are provided an old look about them by the artist. In most cases they are no older than 20 to 30 years.

Q. These artworks are so beautiful, are they prints? If they are original, how are they so inexpensive?

A. All artworks on the site are original, created by accomplished artists, who have learnt their skills from their earlier generations. Indian Arts sources all artworks directly from these artists, because of which we are able to offer these unique works at reasonable costs to the buyer.

Q. Do you have a catalog?

A. Our artworks are unique and non-duplicable. Though many pieces may look similar, no two pieces can be exactly the same. For this reason, we have found that a Printed Catalog of our products may carry only a very limited profile of our articles. Our online store is thus the best possible reflection of the products we can offer.
