    Mata Ni Pachedi


    Mata ni Pachedi is a revered art form and religious tradition that originated amid the nomadic Vaghari community in Gujarat, India. The Vagharis were nomadic farmers living along the edge of the Sabarmati River. Mata ni Pachedi is their unique expression of devotion to the divine mother goddess, particularly Mataji, or Amba Mata. Traditionally, the term Mata ni Pachedi refers to the cloth used to cover the idol of the goddess during rituals and processions. The designs of the cloth often feature intricate patterns, vibrant colors, and depictions of the goddess in various forms, surrounded by symbols of auspiciousness and protection. Legend Legend has it that Mata ni Pachedi originated as a form of worship among the Vaghari community, who were traditionally devotees of the mother goddess. They believed that the goddess would protect them from harm and grant their wishes, leading to a deep-seated reverence for the goddess. Style and Technique The art form is characterized by its bold lines, stylized figures, and attention to detail, with each painting serving as a visual devotion to the goddess's divine attributes and blessings. The mata is always depicted in the center whereas there are also representations of singers, musicians, shamans, animals, and birds that seem to dance and fly in celebration of the goddess. Each mata has their own mount and attributes like Mamai mata sita atop a camel whereas Goddess Vahanvati travels in a boat. The traditional Mata ni Pachedi strictly adheres to two colors made of natural dyes- black and deep red. Mata ni Pachedi paintings are typically executed on cloth using natural pigments derived from plants, minerals, and other organic sources. Simply, the iron used in making black outlines of the work takes around 15 days to process. Later red color is filled using brushes made from bamboo. After the completion of the painting, it is washed and dried around the river. The colored dye is finally fixed with mordant and dried up in the sun.
