Add a festive touch to your home with the beauty of this exquisitely detailed & stunningly beautiful handmade miniature art made in the style of the Kangra Pahari school.
Kangra painting is the pictorial art of Kangra, named after Kangra, Himachal Pradesh, India, a former princely state, which patronized the art. Pahari paintings, as the name suggests, were paintings executed in the hilly regions of India, in the sub-Himalayan state of Himachal Pradesh. It is in the development and modification of Pahari paintings, that the Kangra School features. Kangra paintings belong to the school of Pahari paintings that were patronized by the Rajput rulers between the 17th and 19th centuries.
The striking feature of Kangra paintings is the verdant greenery it depicts. The style is naturalistic, and great attention is paid to detail. The Kangra painters employed cool and fresh colors and with the lyrical blending of form and color.
This charming art depicts Vishnu who sits in padmasana on a full-blown lotus flower painted large enough to accommodate his entire form. The curves of his bend knees merge subtly with the circularity of the lotus. He is flanked by Lakshmi and Saraswati, each sitting gracefully next to her husband. Their hands are in the namaskaram mudra, their gaze brimming with sublime devotion to their husband.
