Manuscript Painting of Assam
Manuscript Painting of Assam
Description

The art of painting that flourished in Assam from 16th century onwards, with the rise of Neo-Vaisnavism under the great Vaisnava saint Sankaradeva, is not known widely to the art historians of the country. However, the paintings which are depicted as illustrations in old manuscripts have all the qualities ot occupy an important place in the art history of India.

The painter was known as Khanikar, who could also be a sculptor and engraver, a carpenter, a maker of earthen images. Khanikars were a professional group. Muslim artisans and craftsmen were included in Khanikar Khel or the guild of artisans.

Testimonials

Heramba Ganapati arrived safely today and was shipped promptly. Another fantastic find from Exotic India with perfect customer service. Thank you. Jai Ganesha Deva
Marc, UK
I ordered Padmapani Statue. I have received my statue. The delivering process was very fast and the statue looks so beautiful. Thank you exoticindia, Mr. Vipin (customer care). I am very satisfied.
Hartono, Indonesia
Very easy to buy, great site! Thanks
Ilda, Brazil
Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.
