Presenting for your personal collection a beautiful miniature Yoga art.
This rare painting invites wonder at India’s extraordinary artistic heritage and with it you will feel the magic and spiritual enlightenment of Yoga. The art of Yoga constitutes a visual archive that attempts to capture one or several of its attributes, as a philosophical school, a Hindu tradition, a spiritual science and an exercise regimen.
Ragamala paintings illustrate poetic verses associated with musical modes, images of yogis & yoginis infuse music and painting, love and pleasure with divinity, lifting aesthetic delectation into a more serious register. Traditionally in India, musicians do not perform written compositions. Instead, a musician’s every performance is a unique improvisation on a “framework” of musical patterns called a raga or ragini. A raga or ragini is defined by the mood it conveys. A complete set of ragas and raginis was called a ragamala (or garland of ragas).
In the featured art, Saindhavi Ragini in a common ragamala verse, longs for her lover as well and is maddened by his absence; the verses imply that it is the god Shiva she adores. Though graced by the delicate beauty of a princess, she wears the garb of a yogini; she rests her arm on a stand to support her as she fingers her mala (rosary) in prayer and listens attentively to an old sage’s music, no doubt hoping to find peace in a spiritual oneness with the god who has deserted her.
