Devi Sarasvati Plays The Veena At Dusk (Framed Version Image)

Devi Sarasvati Plays The Veena At Dusk (Framed Version Image)

A Tanjore painting is forever. The crown jewel of Indian art forms, a painting of this style is instantly recognisable from its liberal use of goldleafs and gems. The contemporary work of art that you see on this page is a fine example of this style. It has been made using traditional pigments and finished with 24 karat goldleafs. It is a depiction of Devi Sarasvati, a characteristic spiritual composition. As is typical of Her iconography, She is seated in lalitasana as She plays on Her veena. The magnificent adornments of form - green silks, gold shringar, and flowers - are matched by the ornate kirtimukha temple that She is housed in. Indeed religious paintings of the Tanjore genre are proof that spirituality is the essence of the artistic pursuit.

Tanjore paintings are a blend of art and craft. Having flourished under the patronage of the art-loving Chola dynasty rulers, they are the most beauteous of Indian paintings. Zoom in on each aspect of the painting to appreciate its opulence. Gorgeous colours such as the red of the temple's inner precinct, the inky blue of the dusk of the background, and the numerous flowers and jewels on the Devi's person and Her temple. She is flanked by two birds that have retracted their feathers for the day and are looking up to Her. Offerings of food and flowers are laid at Her feet. This painting would add to the aesthetics and piety of your space.
