Of note: The Hindu belief system has a rich history of creating and using chariots, or “temple cars.” … Sydney Scherr is the only woman in the world to be invited to work on a chariot as this is the work of men, men who learned the art of the Chariot makers from their fathers and grandfathers. …
It is the only chariot in the world adorned with enamels, and these were Scherr’s contribution to this remarkable chariot.
