Unique 3 1/2 inch x 5 3/4 inch, 1/2 inch thick clear lucite holder with swivel base with custom art graphics and an actual swatch from an orange, green, brown, and silver pailsey pattern 1960's, India style, kurta worn by George Harrison in India. This 2 piece kurta was acquired by George from the Westwood, California Sat Purush Boutique. After careful inspection and consideration it was determined that a small swatch of material (from the interior pocket area) could be removed without compromising the integrity of the garment. The removal was done by a professional seamstress. Each swatch will be unique in pattern, but all will be of similar size (1/4"x7/8"). Both sides of the swatch can be viewed in this unique display. We have also added three (3) actual color film frames from a vintage reel of film showing George Harrison and The Beatles with the Yogi in India.
This display comes with a laminated COA card on the swatch and one for the film frames.

THIS WILL MAKE THE ULTIMATE GIFT FOR A GEORGE HARRISON FAN IN YOUR LIFE.
In February 1968, the English rock band the Beatles travelled to Rishikesh in northern India to attend an advanced Transcendental Meditation (TM) training course at the ashram of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. The visit followed the group's denunciation of drugs in favour of TM, and received widespread media attention. Led by George Harrison's commitment, the band's interest in the Maharishi's teachings changed Western attitudes about Indian spirituality and encouraged the study of Transcendental Meditation. The visit was also one of the most productive periods for the band's songwriting. The Beatles first met the Maharishi in London in August 1967 and then attended his seminar in Bangor in Wales. They had planned to attend the entire ten-day session, but their stay was cut short by the death of their manager, Brian Epstein. Wanting to learn more, they kept in contact with the Maharishi and made arrangements to spend time with him at his teaching centre located near Rishikesh, in "the Valley of the Saints" at the foothills of the Himalayas. The Beatles arrived in India in February 1968, along with their wives, girlfriends, assistants, and numerous reporters. They joined a group of 60 people who were training to be TM teachers, including musicians Donovan, Mike Love and Paul Horn, and actress Mia Farrow. While there, John Lennon, Paul McCartney and Harrison wrote many songs, and Ringo Starr finished writing his first. Eighteen of those songs were recorded for The Beatles ("the White Album"), two songs appeared on the Abbey Road album, and others were used for various solo projects.
