Hand Painted Kalamkari Cushion Cover Depicting Lord Ganesh
Hand painted Kalamkari panel has been patched with vibrant colours in this beautiful cushion cover.
The Srikalahasti style of Kalamkari, wherein the "kalam" or pen is used for free hand drawing of the subject and filling in the colours, is entirely hand worked.
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 alternating between dyeing and painted each color at a time. The Kalamkari panel used here has been painted by National Award Winning Craftsmen of Andhra Pradesh. I absolutely love this piece and hope it finds a lovely rich and spiritual home!
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. Here He is shown in a playful stance shooting arrows of flowers and well being!
