Dancing Krishna With Cows : Kalamkari painting by Harinath.N
The painting is divided into two planes with Krishna as a central figure. He is sitting idly on a tree, with flute in his hand and a peacock feather in his crown. The right plane depicts cows and full bloomed lotuses, symbols of Krishna. While the left plane depicts the various leelas of Krisha, such as Govardhan leela, Pandavas worshiping king Krishna among others. The entire painting is done using contrasting shades which bring our focus on the individual elements of the painting.
Historically, Kalamkaris 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
