The White Room Gallery in Bridgehampton now has a painted elephant sculpture greeting its summer guests. Abstract expressionist Barbara Bilotta, a former Hamptons resident who now lives in Florida, painted the 123-pound sculpture to resemble her vibrant water pieces. She said the painted sculpture is meant to represent an elephant’s memory of water and how the oldest female of the herd, known as the matriarch, is in charge of finding water. “I’m known out here for my water pieces, so I figured I’d keep to that,” she explained. “When I researched them, that seems to be their major goal—they look for water, they hunt for water.”

“Bidri” is a traditional metal handicraft from Bidar, a city in India. Nowadays Bidar-ware – is not only a tradition, but also one of the crafts embodying this enigmatic country. The thing is that these products are made in only one place in India, in Bidar. The current Bidar – a mediocre Asian town with narrow streets and houses of one or two floors of mud brick. People just sleep in these houses, and only in the rainy season and during the cooler months.
