Dancing Court Scene

Dancing Court Scene

Dance in India is rooted from a long heritage of story telling, music, and love for the aesthetic and tradition. Be it for spiritual performance, rite of passage, or even for leisure, it is clear that many aspects of Indian culture are reflected through their dance and movement.

This painting depicting a Dancing Court Scene is a great representation of how dance has transcended time from the myths up to the present. Even today, dance in India fills in many circles of society and life. From spiritual traditions to life ceremonies such as weddings, and the very sources of modern entertainment, dance is indeed a constant in milestones and important celebrations. This watercolor on silk piece depicts a courtyard where a lady is performing in front of a man who seems to be a king. A quick zoom on the piece shows elements of abundant court life, from the towering pillars on and walls around the courtyard, to the gold-toned candle holders and hookah, and even to the group of ladies who appear to be waiting on the king.

Other people depicting on the painting include the small group of ladies playing musical instruments. A number of spectators come bearing gifts and are dressed well in court. Meanwhile, the outer side of the courtyard depicts two groups of men on opposite sides of the painting who appear to be soldiers bearing weapons (spears). Save from a few heads turned, most of the people in the painting look to be captivated by the dancing woman in the center.

Thank you so much for shipping Ma Shitala.  She arrived safely today on Buddha Purnima.  We greeted Her with camphor and conch blowing, and she now is on Ma Kali’s altar.  She is very beautiful.  Thank you for packing Her so well. Jai Ma
