Add a conversation piece with a festive touch to your decor with this striking Kerala Mural painting featuring Uma Maheshwar which is a manifestation of Shiva and Shakti in the Hindu religion.
Uma is Parvati and is the wife of Lord Shiva. Uma is the manifestation of Shakti and Maheshwar is Shiva. Shiva and Shakti together give rise to life and become Paramshakti. It is believed that without Shiva, Shakti is incomplete and without Shakti there is no sign of Shiva. They are considered as the perfect match i.e. Shiva and Shakti. They are associated with happy marital life and worldly happiness.
Rich and intricate, this compact composition is also bright, colorful and breathtakingly beautiful.
This art has been painted by Gowri Murali, a self taught artist of Kerala Murals, from Mumbai, India.
Kerala mural paintings are the frescos depicting mythology and legends, which are drawn on the walls of temples and churches in South India, principally in Kerala. Ancient temples, churches and palaces in Kerala, South India, display an abounding tradition of mural paintings mostly dating back between the 9th to 12th centuries CE when this form of art enjoyed Royal patronage.
Traditional paintings were made on walls but today any surfaces like paper, canvas, cardboard, plywood and terracotta can be used for murals.The human and divine forms are drawn in a stylized form. Elongated eyes, painted lips and finely drawn eyebrows are the characteristics of these paintings.
Kerala Murals are great for any traditional interior decor and at the same time give a touch of ethnicity to contemporary interiors.
