ARCHITECTURE & ICONOGRAPHY

  

 

 

  Rajasthani water well

 

India

In Rajasthan, where water has always been scarce, water wells are indicated by tall towers, so they can be noticed from afar. At the bottom of this well in Mandawa, there is an Indian Blue Peafowl (fig.) strolling around, the National Bird of India.
