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 portrays Lord Vishnu appearing in the vision of Devaki and Vasudev in the prison of Mathura’s atrocious demon king Kansa before he incarnates as Krishna, Devaki’s eighth child, for eliminating the tormenter of his parents and innocent millions.
The artist has preferred a beautiful pavilion with an artistic door, eaves and merlon, beautifully designed each part and a lavish bed with a white cover and a full-length bolster to a rough uncouth indecent prison-cell for housing Devaki and Vasudev, obviously out of reverence for being the parents of Lord Krishna.
The painting portrays in its other half the door-guards along with their dogs in deep slumber, something which in the myth happens later when Vishnu as Krishna has incarnated and an oracle directs Vasudev to shift the newborn to Nand’s house at Gokul and bring in exchange his simultaneously born daughter.
