Our Spirit animal

Welcome to the world where myth meets reality.

Introducing the majestic symbol of our brand, the ‘Makārā’ – a mythical creature steeped in ancient Indian lore, serving as the divine vehicle of the God of rain and lightning. The Makārā embodies the harmonious fusion of terrestrial being and aquatic marvel. A symbol of resilience and possibilities.

With the ability to traverse across realms, from the depths of the ocean to the vast expanse of the heavens, this awe-inspiring creature symbolizes the journey of transformation and the pursuit of limitless horizons.

Just as the Makārā navigates effortlessly through diverse landscapes, our studio embraces versatility and transcends boundaries to deliver unparalleled experiences. With the Makārā as our guiding emblem, we aspire to lead our audience on a journey of discovery and enlightenment.
