Krishna With Cows: Kalamkari painting by Harinath.N
The circular painting depicts a lotus flower separating the painting in two planes. On the right we can see Krishna playing flute while being surrounded by cows, while the other side depicts gopis who have come to listen him play the flute. Krishna is highly ornamented and instead of the cowherd Krishna with a turban, here we can see Krishna the king of Dwaraka. The colours used in the painting are bright, contrasting and yet complementing.
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
