• Handpainted Shringaar Raas Saree on Kerala Cotton

    The sublime art of ‘Shringar’ (dressing up for a meeting with a lover) has been depicted on this beautiful kerala cotton saree with silver zari adding a touch of glam.
    Handpainted by our state awardee Pichwai artist, this handpainted form is a blend of Patachitra and Rajasthani art.

    This beautiful saree depicts a woman as she prepares herself in eager anticipation of meeting her beloved, a very human situation, but in this case also a metaphor for the worshipper preparing to meet with god.
    These Ragini paintings were inspired from ‘The Kavipriya’ (Poems of the Beloved), written in the late sixteenth century by poet Keshava Dasa.
    The Ragmala series originated in the 17th and 19th centuries in Rajasthan and is practiced to date.
    The delightful color combination with brilliant workmanship/artistry makes this a collectible.
