About the Artwork +

Cheriyal masks are a counterpart of the better known Cheriyal scroll paintings. They have been important props in India's historical storytelling tradition. The face masks represented the life-sized characters who appeared in the tales of Telangana's wandering storytellers especially during village fairs or ‘Jataras’ as they were called in local folklore. The storytellers travelled from village to village narrating stories on society, culture, and religion. While the bigger masks were stage props by the storyteller, smaller version of them were sold to the people as memorabilia. Today, Cheriyal masks with their striking colours make vibrant home decor for modern Indian homes.
These masks are made with eco-friendly materials like Tamarind Seed paste, saw dust, used cloth and natural colours.

    Cheriyal Scroll


    Cheriyal scrolls, resembling a living narrative akin to cinematic reels or comic strips, intricately weave tales sourced from the tapestry of Indian mythology. Painted in vibrant, predominantly primary hues, with fiery red backgrounds dominating, these artworks exude the unrestricted creative spirit of local artisans, unfettered by the shackles of formal academia. Spanning over four centuries, the cherished tradition of Cheriyal scroll painting is intrinsically woven into the storytelling legacy of its region. These narratives find their roots in the familiarity of ancient literary, mythological, and folk traditions. Unlike scroll paintings in other parts of Asia, which adorned the courts and noble abodes, India's scrolls were the province of wandering bards and village artists, deeply embedded in the rural fabric of life. Though once a prominent artistic expression across Andhra and neighboring regions, each infused with its unique flavors and local customs, Cheriyal scrolls have sought refuge in Cheriyal town, Telangana. Here, they stand as the last bastion, as the waves of modernity, in the form of television, cinema, and computers, steadily encircle this captivating tradition.
