“I have called on the Goddess and found her within myself”
~ Marion Zimmer Bradley, The Mists of Avalon
Bahuchara Devi is a divine Hindu deity worshiped fervently by women who desire to conceive, or men who are unable to procreate effectively. Bahuchara Mata is easily appeased by selfless devotion and stands for non-violence and innocence. A rooster serves as a vehicle for the Goddess and she is depicted carrying a trident in one hand and a copy of the Hindu scripture in the other.
When the nomadic Vaghera community was not allowed to visit temples, they created their own temples in their homes by painting these stunning incarnations of the mother goddess on big cloth paintings. It is one of the few folk art forms which involves both block printing as well as free hand drawing.
Many times such textiles in Mata ni Pachedi art are donated by devotees after the fulfilment of wishes. These goddesses keep members of the devotee's family healthy. They control the rains and weather, cure animal diseases and guard the region against natural as well as supernatural calamities (Gatwood 1985), denoted here is Bahuchara Maata whose vehicle is the goat.
