Exclusive to the British Museum, a silk scarf featuring a yogini holding a mynah bird.

Made from 100% silk, this delicate scarf forms part of a range accompanying the British Museum’s exhibition: Tantra: enlightenment to revolution. The image is shown on either end of the scarf, separated with a geometric border.

The design has been inspired by a beautiful watercolour painting of an exquisitely dressed yogini gazing meditatively at a mynah bird. The original, from Bijapur in southwest India, dates to around 1604, and shows the yogini surrounded by blooming flowers, and wearing ornate gold jewellery. The stunning image is one of a number of examples of art from the early 17th century in which the distinction between yoginis as mortal female practitioners of yoga and Yoginis as goddesses becomes somewhat hazy.

An enchanting gift inspired by India’s rich heritage.
