This style flowered around temples in Andhra Pradesh, India and so had an almost religious identity - scrolls, temple hangings, chariot banners and the like, depicted deities and scenes taken from the great Hindu epics - Ramayana. Mahabarata, Puranas and the mythological classics.
Only natural dyes are used in Kalamkari and it involves seventeen painstaking steps.
Lord Ganesha, with his elephant head, depicted here is widely revered as the Remover of Obstacles and more generally as the Lord of Beginnings in the Hindu religion.
