Iteeha is coming back to Ahmedabad, we have many more exciting workshops planned at Craftroots on 16th & 17th November 2019, so come join us for these Folk Art and Textile workshops, register soon!!!
Pichwais essentially depict the Lord in various 'leelas' with the moon, lotus blooms, peacocks, parrots or cows; and are set in the lush vegetation the artists find aplenty in their surroundings.
Pichwai paintings and the Lotus flower are almost synonymous with each other- The lotus flower was so loved by Lord Krishna (worshipped as Srinathji in Nathdwara in Rajasthan) that other than holding one lotus in his right hand and wearing a garland of lotuses, even his bed was decorated with lotus flowers. Hence the importance of the lotus in Pichwai paintings.
No prior experience required, it will be a guided session. You get to take home with you a beautiful painting at the end of the workshop.
