These are a few indigenous rare artifacts, which the Germans sent from Tamilnadu to Germany during 18th century. A palanquin model, pal bearers, reclining cushions with velvet pillows, besides, palm leaf hand fans and a decorated hand fan made of peacock feathers can also be seen. I was permitted to see these artifacts in the ‘Wonder-Chamber’ of the Franckens archives in Germany, thanks to its Director Dr. Thomas J. Müller-Bahlke and Mr. Klaus E. Göltz
