Radha Krishna : Kalamkari painting by Harinath.N
The painting depicts a unique representation of Radha and Krishna. While the iconographical representation is the same as in other such paintings, here they are depicted wearing typical south Indian style mukutas and jewellery. Their postures, details of their dresses and even the mudras are done in typical Kalamkari style. The background is plain, which brings all our focus to the central figures. They stand on peacock feathers laid by the peacock standing beside them. At the top we can see an intricate torana.
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
