पगल्या का अर्थ शाब्दिक रूप से " फुटमार्क " है। घर के बाहर बरामदा पर और मुख्य मंडाना के आसपास, परिवार के सदस्यों को आशीर्वाद देने के लिए वे घर में देवी का स्वागत करते हैं। अन्य paglya शिखर सम्मेलन से जुड़े दो समबाहु त्रिकोण की एक जोड़ी दिखाते हैं। दो विपरीत त्रिकोणों में से एक छोटे आकार का है, पीछे के पैर और दूसरे को प्रदर्शित करने के लिए, व्यापक आधार के साथ और पांच बिंदुओं के साथ चिह्नित किया जाता है, जो पहले पैर और पैर की उंगलियों का प्रतीक होता है दूसरी ओर, अधिक विस्तृत पगल्या में , विविध भौतिक और प्राकृतिक चित्रण फूल, जलतरंग रेखा, विविध त्रिभुज अग्नि के द्योतक शामिल हैं, जो देवता रूप में राम या सीता या मां लक्ष्मी को इंगित करते हैं। इसे पगल्या कहते हैं।
“Pagalya'' means footmark. Adorning the verandah of the house, it welcomes the goddess to bless all the family members of the house. In some more complex Pagalya designs, there is a lot of diverse depictions of flowers, different triangles signifying fire, indicating deities like Rama or Sita or goddess Lakshmi.
Painted by Artist Vidya Devi Soni, acclaimed Mandana Artist. Vidya Devi Soni (Age 70), was born in a traditional artist family and learnt the art of Mandana from her father and mother. In her almost 60 years of carrying the legacy of this art forward, she has been awarded the National Merit Award in 2017 and has also taught many students. In her work, you will see the traditional ways of painting Mandana art, beautiful geometric patterns of Mandana art dancing off from her paintings, preserving this heritage art in its original form yet making it beautifully accessible for todays modern homes.
Mandana Paintings, one of the oldest forms of tribal art of India is predominantly done by the Meena community in Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh. One of the incredible feats of Mandana art is that it isn’t taught through mere formal training but passed along as girls learn it by observing and emulating their mothers. In a way, it is seen as a skill that has connected women over generations. These paintings are often seen on walls and floors of rural mud houses, keeping the place ornamental. The theme differs from animals such as peacocks and elephants to wells and water bodies. Even without colour, it portrays a distinctive and diverse design that binds several generations together. Some believe that making these on the entrance of homes while serving its decorative attribute, also protects the home from evil. It has religious and auspicious significance as seen on major Indian festivals when it embellishes houses just like Rangoli art. It wards off wicked energies while manifesting divinity.
