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 verdant greenery it depicts. The style is naturalistic, and great attention is paid to detail. The Kangra painters employed cool and fresh colors and with the lyrical blending of form and color.
This charming art depicts Vishnu as he reclines on the great serpent Shesha, who floats upon the primordial ocean, between the end of one cosmic era and the beginning of another. As Vishnu awakens from his sleep, the goddess Lakshmi massages his feet. The god Brahma is born from a lotus that grows out of Vishnu’s navel. He will perform the work of creation, making the universe anew in the endless cycle of time.
