This fascinating shawl pin is based on a painting made in Jodhpur India in the 19th century.  The part of the painting on which this pin is based is in the upper right hand corner of the canvas and depicts Jodhpur city surrounded by a wall that follows the contours of the land, the city backed by cliffs with the Mehrangarth Fort above it.  I became attracted to the idea of creating a series of pins based on architectural series.  This round pin and it's cousin, which emerged from another part of the same painting, are the first of these architectural pins.
