Immerse yourself in a unique culture from Rajasthan, that you might have not even heard of?

Phad art is a style of religious-folk painting made on a piece of cloth that resembles a large scroll. Phad in local dialect means ‘fold’ and this is used as a canvas to depict various episodes from the life of local deities, mainly Pabuji and Devnarayan. Lord Devnarayan is believed to be the incarnation of Hindu god Vishnu and Pabuji, the incarnation of Laxman (brother of lord Rama).

This art form is more than seven hundred years old and this style of painting is mainly done by Joshi families of Bhilwara district in Rajasthan. Long time ago, Chochu Bhat, a profound devotee of Lord Devnarayan commissioned the ‘Joshi family’ to illustrate the entire life of the folk-deity on Phad. From then onwards, Joshi families have become the traditional torchbearers of this art form.

Learn the basics of the art from grassroots of rural India.
