It just might be! That is what "The Chennai Silks" claims this sari to be.

Well, for starters, the silk sari has been woven with twelve precious stones and also features replications of 11 of Raja Ravi Verma paintings.

What kind of precious stones we talking about?
umm...emeralds, rubies, pearls set in platinum and gold are just a few of the stones that were woven intricately onto the sari to adorn the women in the paintings..

What will this sari will cost you?
A mere Rs 40 lakhs!

Quick! Better hide the newspapers and turn off the tv before your mother-in-law asks for one!

The sari looks really great and beautiful. But, makes me wonder, once draped would the masterpiece would even be visible on it. Somehow, it would have to be hooked on to shoulders to let the border fall through, otherwise the painting would be lost in pleats.

I doubt anyone buying the sari is ever gonna wear it. It would be more of a collectible for the big wigs!
