We all know the value and importance of Lord Ganesha in
Hinduism. His presence spreads an aura of happiness, love, devotion and
fearlessness. It is said that by worshipping Lord Ganesha before the start of
any ceremony, all the unseen hurdles are vanished for a peaceful path.
Focussing on this colorful pattachitra art, Rabi Behera has beautifully painted
all the iconic features of this Orissan folk art style; depicting the
mythological figurine of Lord Ganesha standing in a lively dance posture with
the head turned sideways as a part of his happy-to-go dance routine.
Pattachitra art holds a special importance in Orissa and
West Bengal as it highlights the variation and beauty of their rich culture.
Done on a gauze-like fine cotton canvas using natural colors and the entire
background is filled with creative motifs and designs. The pink color of
Ganesha is a rare depiction that induces a sense of positivity and brightness;
painted with a portly belly and posterior hands holding his iconic weapons and
the right anterior hands holds his broken tusk as a gesture of his dedication
for work while the left anterior hands is postured in an elegant dance mudra.
Adore the beauty of the background filled in with flower
motifs that complements with his elegant lotus eyes and the richly decorated
multicolored garbs. The rich gold and bead jewels and the designer crown embellished
over his body enhance the divinity and luxury of Lord Ganesha. The smoky grey
shade of Ganesha’s vahana, mooshak contrasts amazingly with the leafy outer
frame of the border. Hanging this painting on any light shade wall, will
highlight the beauty of this Ganesha pattachitra art.
