Pattachitra Painting of Bengal

Rs. 860.00

This painting beautifully depicts Goddess Kali of Kalighat Temple in Bengal and Her devotee Ramakrishna Paramahansa - an Indian mystic and yogi during the 19th-century and his wife Sarada Ma. Kali is the Hindu goddess associated with eternal energy. The name Kali means "black" but has, by folk etymology, come to mean "force of time (kala)." Kali is today considered the goddess of time and change. Kali is represented as the consort of god Shiva, on whose body she is often seen standing. She is associated with many other Hindu goddesses like Durga. The colors and intricate work classify the painting as a splendid effort by the artist. The painting is made on cotton canvas.

Scroll painting or PattaChitra is a notable art form, coming from the tribal villages of West Bengal. These scrolls were visual accompaniments to stories told through songs and ballads. The Ramayan, tribal folklore and many other mythological stories have come alive with these beautifully illustrated scrolls. These paintings are traditionally made with natural mineral and vegetable colors. Delightful and eartthy, these paintings reflect the ancient tradition of story telling in India.

The painting is done by Manu Chitrakar, the Patua Artist from West Bengal.
