About the Artwork +

This Chhau mask designed by Dharmendra Chitrakar portrays the characteristic features of goddess Durga with its round face, wide, open eyes, and divine appearance. The third eye of the deity conveys enlightened status or vigilance to protect or intervene in the mortal world. Its facial expression is both powerful and serene, blending fierceness with a sense of calm authority. Moreover, the elaborate headgear is an opulent addition to the mask, extending high above the head and richly ornamented with beads of varying sizes.
The Chhau mask serves not only as a piece of art but also as a powerful symbol within the Chhau dance tradition. When worn during a performance, this mask would transform the dancer into a living embodiment of the deity, conveying their character through movement and expression.

Dharmendra Sutradhar blue-tick

Dharmendra

 

Dharmendra Sutradhar, a seasoned artisan from Purulia's quaint village of Charidia, has been immersed in the tradition of mask handicrafts since childhood, inheriting the craft from his forefathers. With 23 years of experience under his belt, Dharmendra represents the fourth generation in his family dedicated to the art form, with even the younger members enthusiastically following suit. Despite his modest educational background, having completed his studies up to the ninth grade in Baghmundi, Dharmendra's talent has been recognized with prestigious accolades, including multiple state awards and a national award for his exceptional craftsmanship, notably for his creation of Ghatotkach, a character from Hindu mythology.

Driven by a passion for innovation and a deep spiritual connection to his craft, Dharmendra finds joy in experimenting with new designs and colors, particularly inspired by divine figures like Durga, Shiva, Krishna, and Buddha. However, amidst the fulfillment he finds in his work, Dharmendra grapples with the harsh realities of financial constraints, relying solely on his craft for income. He harbors a dream of revitalizing the dwindling handicraft industry by creating opportunities for artisans in his village and beyond, envisioning a marketplace where their talents can shine and their livelihoods secured, ensuring the continuity of this cherished tradition for generations to come. Supported by his four brothers, who share his dedication to the craft, Dharmendra remains steadfast in his commitment to preserving and promoting the rich heritage of Purulia's handicrafts.
