Prime Minister Narendra Modi presented gifts to world leaders at the G20 summit

At the conclusion of the 17th G20 summit in Bali, Indonesia, Prime Minister Narendra Modi gifted US President Joe Biden with a Kangra miniature artwork from Himachal Pradesh. The Kangra style, named after a former princely state that is now part of Himachal, originated after refugee Mughal artists were inspired by themes from Jayadeva Bihari and Keshav Das’ love poetry.

He presented a Kanal brass set from Himachal’s Mandi and Kullu regions, along with traditional musical instruments, to Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez.
Giorgia Meloni, Italy’s new prime minister, was presented with a scarf, a Patan Patola dupatta, handcrafted by the Salvi family of northern Gujarat. The scarf was created using a technique known as “double ikat,” which gives it a multi-colored appearance; clothing manufactured using the “double ikat” technique is traditionally only made in two nations other than India: Japan and Indonesia.
Meloni was not the first politician to get a Gujarati gift; British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak received a “Mata ni Pachedi” artefact, a type of textile art created by the Vaghari community.

Emmanuel Macron of France, who hosted Modi for lunch, received an agate bowl from Gujarat’s Kutch region. Lee Hsien Loong of Singapore and Olaf Scholz of Germany also received similar presents.

Modi presented Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese with a piece of ritualistic tribal folk art called “pithora,” crafted by Rathwa craftsmen from Gujarat’s Chhota Udaipur.

The art is related to Aboriginal dot painting, which is practised by indigenous groups in Australia.
