Provenance

Rajasthan, which translated from Hindi means Land of Great Kings, is India's largest state. This region, dotted with ornate palaces and imposing forts, is famed for its bright saris, intricate turbans, camels, and rich cuisine. This boy's topi, or hat, served three uses. First, it protected the head from the hot sun of the Thar Desert, a large sandy ribbon that runs northeast through the state. Second, the bright green and silver brought a colorful contrast to the dune landscape. Finally, it was used to cover the head during prayer as a sign of respect.
