Seen above are two saris [or sarees], traditional clothes worn by draping around the body and widespread in the Indian subcontinent. These were very popular during weddings in Singapore which has a significant population of Indian descent. I understand that the one on the right is a version called Benarasi [from Varanasi, northern India]. These are fine saris with silver and gold brocade, intricate patterns and substantially heavier.
Observation: Women took a long time in this section, scrutinizing each display. Men on the other hand, gave a cursory glance, barely slowing down their pace on the way to the next section on Scythian horseback warriors.
