About the Artwork +

The Cheriyal mask by Sai Kiran depicting a child version of Lord Ganesha, is painted in a vibrant red-vermillion color, traditionally associated with auspiciousness and spiritual purity in Hindu culture. The yellow tilak adorning Bal Ganesha represents knowledge and wisdom, qualities attributed to Ganesha as the god of intellect and learning. Moreover, the confident black lines outlining the contours and intricate patterns of the mask enhance its visual impact, showcasing the skillful craftsmanship characteristic of Cheriyal art.
Traditionally, these masks are used during performances of folk theatre and storytelling, particularly in the region of Telangana, India. Cherial masks are crafted using an ancient mask-making technique that consists of an elaborate five-step process: molding, drying, decorating, smoothing, and painting. Generally, they are made from materials like wood, coconut shells, and sawdust, combined with tamarind seed paste to create a sturdy yet lightweight structure. Natural dyes and pigments are used to apply the vivid colors, which are often derived from minerals and plants.

    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.
