Kathakali painting created using acrylics in the Kerala Mural style. Kathakali is a major form of classical Indian dance. It is a "story play" genre of art, but one distinguished by the elaborately colourful make-up, costumes and face masks that the traditionally male actor-dancers wear. Kathakali is a performing art in the Malayalam-speaking southwestern region of Kerala. Vesham Pacha has been depicted here. Pacha is a character type that belongs to Kathakali, the popular dance drama of Kerala. The Pacha (green) character usually represents pious, gentle and noble characters in the stories taken up for performance in Kathakali. This character type is identified by the unique facial make up. The different facial color used in Kathakali has its significance as following. Green-It represents royalty, divinity, and virtue. Red patches beside noses-It represent royalty. Black-Its used for evil and wickedness. Yellow-for saint and women. The traditional mural paintings of Kerala are a fine art of skill and creative excellence. Most of the noted mural works of Kerala were done between the 15th and 19th centuries. They bear a stamp of uniqueness in techniques used and aesthetics. A mural is an artwork painted or applied directly onto walls, ceilings or any other permanent surface. In murals, architectural elements of the given space are harmoniously incorporated into its creation. Among murals, the ones from Kerala stand out for their finesse.
