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 naturalistic style and great attention paid to detail. The Kangra painters employed cool and fresh colors and with the lyrical blending of form and color.
This charming art features Narasimha, who is a fierce avatar of the Hindu god Vishnu, being worshiped by two of his devotees. The Narasimha iconography shows him with a human torso and lower body, with a lion face and claws, and typically with the demon Hiranyakashipu in his lap whom he is in the process of killing.
