Pichhwai are large devotional Hindu painted pictures, normally on cloth, which portray Krishna. They are mainly made to hang in Hindu temples of the Pushtimarg devotional tradition, especially the Shrinathji Temple in Nathdwara, Rajasthan, built around 1672. Pichwai, literally meaning 'at the back,' are lyrical paintings on cloth that hang as a back drop to the idol of Srinathji .Originally Pichwai was painted on the handspun starched cotton fabric.
The artisans would then sketch the art on that starched cloth. Then the decorative and beautiful images were created. The images were then ready to be painted with completely organic and natural colors, paints and even natural brushes. I was inspired by the paintings when I visited Udaipur years ago. I have used canvas and acrylic paints and decorative stones as jewelry. This is a set of three Pichwai style paintings.
NOTE: This is a Set of 3 Acrylic Paintings.
