About the Artwork +

Crafted with unparalleled intricacy, this Kathakali Leather Shadow Puppet is brought to life by the artistic brilliance of Sindhe Sriramulu. It captivates the viewer with its enchanting color theory, where vibrant hues symbolize the diverse emotions and characters portrayed. This exquisite artform hails from the culturally rich state of Andhra Pradesh, India, and holds a centuries-old legacy of storytelling and artistic expression.

As the puppets gracefully dance to the puppeteer's skillful manipulations, the art comes alive, transcending time and taking spectators on a magical journey into the heart of India's cultural heritage.

Sindhe Sriramulu blue-tick


Sindhe Chandu, with over 35 years of experience, learned the art from his father, following a tradition that spans generations. His work has included projects that illustrate the legends of Ramayana and Mahabharata. Chandu is particularly drawn to historical themes, bringing them to life through his craft. He has faced challenges related to transportation and the demanding nature of his work but remains dedicated to preserving this art form. His hope for the future is to see his craft thrive as a successful business and gain the recognition and value it deserves.
