Hill Palace Museum Visit By ADM Students
On September 13, 2023, students from the fashion and interior design departments of Academy of design & management visited the Hill Palace Museum in Tripunithura, Cochin, the largest archaeological museum in Kerala, with the assistance of the JD Institute of Fashion Technology Cochin. The museum exhibits 14 different types of artifacts, including the Crown and royal ornaments from the Cochin royal family’s time as well as paintings, marble and stone sculptures, weaponry, inscriptions, and coins. Although some of the museum’s highlights were contributed by the Paliam Devaswom and the Department of Archaeology, the majority was provided by the Cochin royal family. The collection includes priceless coins, jewelry, royal beds, and epigraphic samples in addition to a gold crown adorned with beautiful stones.
Students could learn about the many techniques and aesthetics used to create these objects as well as how to incorporate them into modern fashion design. The charming deer park, which is part of the palace complex, attracts visitors of all ages. By watching the deer, students can gain inspiration for their art by using the varied colors and patterns they exhibit. They had a fair awareness of Kerala’s native architectural principles and traditional architectural styles because they were both employed on the buildings and knowledgeable about them. The royal complex is home to a vast collection of rare things, including artwork, sculptures, manuscripts, and coins. Students can be educated about the various production styles and techniques used to create these artifacts.Students had a better grasp on how art and design have evolved over time by visiting the museum’s modern art show, which is currently on display. The students had a great time in the museum because of its rich cultural legacy.
