Hanuman: Kalamkari Painting by Harinath.N
The circular painting depicts an infant Hanuman on his way to eat the mango like sun. We can see the palace architecture in the foreground of the painting as he is flies higher in the sky. In the left section of the painting, we can see Rahu, who wanted to cast a shadow on the sun and indra, who went to stop the ‘monkey-child’ from swallowing the sun. Thick and thin lines are used to show the different moods and features in the painting. The lines also depict movement in an otherwise still painting. The colours used in the painting are bright, contrasting and yet complementing.
Historically, Kalamkari used to be known as Pattachitras, an art form still found in neighboring Odisha and other parts of India and Nepal. The term "Pattachitra" translates to "patta", meaning "cloth", with "chitra" meaning "picture".Paintings made on fabric and fabric scrolls are mentioned in ancient Hindu, Buddhist and Jain literature. Under medieval Islamic rule, the term Kalamkari was derived from the words "kalam", which means "pen" in Telugu, and "kari", which means craftmanship. This became popular under the patronage of the Golconda sultanate
