Presenting for your personal collection a beautiful miniature Yoga art.
This rare painting invites wonder at India’s extraordinary artistic heritage and with it you will feel the magic and spiritual enlightenment of Yoga. The art of Yoga constitutes a visual archive that attempts to capture one or several of its attributes, as a philosophical school, a Hindu tradition, a spiritual science and an exercise regimen.
Ragamala paintings illustrate poetic verses associated with musical modes, or forms. Traditionally in Indian music, every performance is a unique improvisation on a framework of musical patterns called raga or ragini. Ragini are defined by the mood conveyed as well as musical specifications including notes, specifically whether they are dormant, sharp or flat.
Kedar Ragini, depicted in this artwork, is one of the most peaceful of the musical modes. Kedar comes last in most ragamala series and often illustrated with somber colors, spare ornament, and mood of release from attachment. Night has fallen, the moon shines in a deep blue night sky. The visual representation includes a scene of a sage (on the right) singing to the music of a vina, a plucked string instrument.
The figure on the left is noticeably darker and is covered in vibhuti, the sacred ashes that is applied to the body of Hindu devotees. He listens to the sweet music, while seated on a pelt, and leaning on a crutch (known as zafar tayika), in a state of meditation. The circles on his arms are burn marks, self-inflicted to demonstrate devotion for the divine. In visual form, this painting has the potential to incite a kind of synesthesia, as by gazing upon it we can get a sense of the melody and effect of this mode, a dreamy, relaxing, peaceful sound.
