Hanuman: Kalamkari painting by Harinath.N
The circular painting depicts lord Hanuman sitting beside a cow and playing Veena. All the deities had blessed hanuman with many blessings, so when it came to Narada Muni, he gave Hanuman the blessing of being an expert musician. Wanting to test the boon by Narada he requested to play his Veena while he sang a song. In the background we can see Rama, Lakshmana and Hanuman along with the vanara sena. The two different scenes have been beautifully juxtaposed by using contrasting yet complimenting shades.
Historically, Kalamkaris used to be known as Pattachitras, an art form still found in neighboring Odisha and other parts of India and Nepal. The term "Pattachitra" translates to "patta", meaning "cloth", with "chitra" meaning "picture".Paintings made on fabric and fabric scrolls are mentioned in ancient Hindu, Buddhist and Jain literature. Under medieval Islamic rule, the term Kalamkari was derived from the words "kalam", which means "pen" in Telugu, and "kari", which means craftmanship. This became popular under the patronage of the Golconda sultanate
