About the Artwork +

Sindhe Chandu's leather puppetry brings to life the mythical tale of Jalasandhar, showcasing his exceptional skills in this traditional art form. The depiction of Jalasandhar, a character from Hindu mythology, is a testament to Chandu's ability to breathe life into ancient narratives through the medium of leather puppets.
Traditional practices and skills inherent in leather puppetry are expertly utilized by Chandu. The artist employs specially treated leather, shaping and carving it meticulously to create articulated puppets. The portrayal of Jalasandhar involves intricate detailing, from the character's expressions to the symbolic elements that convey the essence of this mythical tale. Chandu's proficiency in manipulating light and shadow on the leather surface further enhances the dramatic impact of the Jalasandhar narrative.
Leather puppets, typically crafted from treated animal hides, reflect the enduring durability and flexibility integral to this traditional art form. Chandu's choice of material aligns with time-honored practices, ensuring that each puppet captures the essence of the storytelling tradition. The incorporation of Jalasandhar into leather puppetry stands as a captivating example of Sindhe Chandu's commitment to preserving cultural narratives through intricate craftsmanship, where mythology and art converge in a mesmerizing display of storytelling.
