Indian Patachitra Painting of Ganesh

From: £120

Indian Painting of Ganesh

A very fine Indian Patachitra, or icon painting of Ganesh: a large central image is surrounded by ten more Ganeshes and many smaller figures, all elaborately decorated inside a finely detailed arched panel.
Patachitra, icon paintings of Orissa, are one of several art forms practised around the Orissan temple of Puri. The chitrakar painters use a fine cotton cloth, coated with a cooked solution of powdered tamarind seed, chalk and gum.
Ganesh is wearing one snake as a belt, two of his six arms are holding aloft another snake, his remaining hands are holding prayer beads, a sword, his broken tusk and a conch. A mouse is at his feet.
Numerous strange figures populate the painting and many more are half hidden in the border.

The painting is mounted on to a thin wooden board.

Ganesh painting dimensions:

38x53cm.
