Your decor will bear a sophisticated and cultured look when adorned with this striking Tanjore painting featuring Shirdi Sai Baba, a saint who was considered an embodiment of self-realization and perfection.
Shirdi Sai Baba (1838 – 15 October 1918) was a spiritual master who was and is regarded by his devotees as a saint, fakir, avatar (an incarnation of God), or sadguru, according to their individual proclivities and beliefs. He was revered by both his Muslim and Hindu devotees, and during, as well as after, his life on earth it remained uncertain if he was a Muslim or Hindu himself. This however was of no consequence to Sai Baba himself.
Rich and intricate, this compact composition is also bright, colorful and breathtakingly beautiful.
Tanjore painting is a classical South Indian painting style, which was inaugurated from the town of Thanjavur (anglicized as Tanjore) in the southern state of Tamil Nadu, India. The art form draws its sources and inspiration from about 1600 AD, a period when the leaders of Thanjavur encouraged all forms of art.
Modern Tanjore paintings are panel paintings done over a wooden base. The paintings are decorated by gilded and gem-set technique, where 22 ct gold leaves & sparkling synthetic stones are used to highlight and create a 3D relief effect on certain aspects of the painting like ornaments, dresses etc. to give the painting an ornate look.
In Tanjore paintings one can see the influence of Deccani, Vijayanagar, Maratha and even European styles of painting. Both religious and secular subjects are depicted in Tanjore paintings.
