The Airavat

"What I dream of is an art of balance, of purity and serenity devoid of troubling or depressing subject matter - a soothing, calming influence on the mind, rather like a good armchair which provides relaxation from physical fatigue."
~Henri Matisse 
 
One of the most auspicious symbols in Phad painting - the ‘Airavat’ signifies growth, prosperity, wealth, luxury and a great life. It is made in a way that the front of Airavat is elevated that flies into heaven, hence symbolically to attain Nirvana and many heads and trunks depict multiple aspects of life that needs to be balanced in order to have wholesome and fulfilled life. Carry this balance with you, handpainted on this sunny yellow tote by our artist Kalyan Joshi.
