India Rajasthan Rajput Royal Procession Silk Painting Handmade Ethnic Folk Art
Rajasthani Royal Procession
You will love this colorful Rajasthani art which is a beautiful watercolor painting with all the splendor of a royal Indian maharajah procession.
The secular and sacred power of an Indian king was expressed most spectacularly in the grand public processions that celebrated royal events and religious festivities. Riding a richly caparisoned elephant with his mahout (elephant keeper) at his side, the ruler was lavishly dressed and jeweled and surrounded by attendants bearing symbolic attributes of kingship: a royal parasol, chauri, fans and staffs of authority.
The vision of a king in all his splendor was believed to be auspicious. It was central to the concept of darshan, the propitious act of seeing and being seen by a superior being, whether a god or a king. Although originally a Hindu notion, the idea of darshan became an integral aspect of kingship throughout the subcontinent.
This art is full of grandeur, color and vigor and will indeed be a brilliant piece of Rajasthani art for your decor or display. Buy it today before it is gone.
