Fashion in Stone (Pudukottai - Tamil Nadu)

When Mr.Vijay can come up with Poetry in Stone, why not I share Fashion in Stone...???
These are all from the Avudaiyar Koil... They are horse riders... Look at each Kachcha Dhoti (Lower garment), each one is of different design, with a different border and different belt. Not just that, they also have a different cloth on the horse too!!!

Fine striped top Dhoti with an exquisite border!!!

And you thought waist pouch was new??!!!

Floral jewellery at its epitome...

A simple 2 bar sandal of the 16th C!
