Kangra Miniature paintings are one of the finest Indian arts. The art form hails from a former princely state, now a city in North Indian state of Himachal Pradesh and are protected by Geographical Indication (GI).
The Kangra paintings particularly excel in depicting the feminine charm in a very graceful manner articulately portraying refined, tender emotions of women. The embodiments of youth, beauty and emotive sentiments- the figure of youthful coy nayika (heroine) is often seen in Kangra miniatures. In the lovely valleys of the majestic Himalayas and in a setting, where life was simple and the men and women lived much closer to nature, the highly sophisticated art of
the royal courts gained a new softness. Apart from female beauty, there is noticeable portrayal of multiple shades of green, rivers, trees, birds, cattle, and flowers.
Made with mineral pigments and pure gold on acid-free handmade paper using fine squirrel tail
hair paint brushes, Kangra miniatures can be called a language of human love.
All artworks are Framed | 21% discount on actual price (Actual price start from $215 onwards)
The lone lady, symbolic of love in separation or loss, is a leitmotif of ragamala paintings. Whether gathering flowers, wandering through the forest or ruefully strumming a musical instrument "rudra vina or bin), the lady yearns for her absent lover while surrounded by deer.
In classical Indian literature, women are classified into four types according to the predominant type of the energy manifested in a woman: earth, water, fire and air. Of these the Padmini (The lotus lady) is best of all- rare, most beautiful, pious and graceful. In the full bloom of her youth and beauty, moon-like face, dark expressive eyes, she is the Lady Lotus.
Nayika Bheda series is a collective of eight types of Nayikas or heroines representing eight different states in relationship to her hero or nayaka. As archetypal states of romantic heroine, it has been used as theme in Indian painting, literature, sculpture as well as Indian classical dance. This artwork illustrates Virahokanthita Nayika (or one distressed by separation).
This painting is inspired by a poem by famous Hindi poet Keshavdas (circa 1591). It illustrates the longing of the heroine who waits for her lover-bejewelled and seated on a freshly made flower bed on a starry night.
This painting is inspired by a poem by famous Hindi poet Keshavdas. It translates as follows and describes a moment when the heroine urges her beloved not to leave home in the scorching heat of this summer month- "Air, Water, Sky, Earth and Fire, all these elements, become one, a burning fire. The cobra nestles in his trunk, and the tiger slumbers in his shade. All creatures on earth and water are feeble... That is why the wise enjoin- do not leave home in Jyeshtha.
