This painting is an exquisite work of Kalamkari art featuring a Hindu Goddess and handmade in a colorful design & border.
Kalamkari or qalamkari is a type of hand-painted cotton textile, produced in parts of India and Iran. Its name originates from the Persian words qalam (pen) and kari (craftmanship), meaning drawing with a pen. The “kalam” or pen is used for free hand drawing of the subject and filling in the colors.
This style flowered around temples and their patronage and so had an almost religious identity – scrolls, temple hangings, chariot banners and the like, depicted deities and scenes taken from the Hindu epics. Modern artists, mainly form South India, continue to practice this traditional art form.
