About the Artwork +

Sanjhi is also linked to the divine love of Radha Krishna, the expression of love and devotion.  The unconditional love of Radha and Krishna can be seen as he symbol of the soul longing from the divine and merging with it.

Sanjhi is the ancient art of paper stenciling practiced across Mathura and Vrindavan. Craftsmen use specially designed scissors for this artform. The term Sanjhi is derived from the Hindi word sandhya, the period of dusk with which the art form is typically associated.

Ashutosh’s great grandfather Shri Chain Shuk Das Verma started to master this folk art tradition nearly 300 years ago and since then it has been handed forward from generation to generation.Ashutosh is the 6th generation artist from the Verma community in Mathura. He started learning Sanjhi tradition when he was 5 and it’s been 15 years now that he practicing this artform. His family has won State and National Awards for Sanjhi work and he being just 20 years old has applied for a State Award category.

Art Form

Sanjhi

The delicate art of papercutting said to have originated from the times of Lord Krishna has evolved over time from the sanctum of the temple to modern home décor – this is Sanjhi. A rare art from Braj. The word Sanjhi means evening or dusk and is more an expression of the devotional love that was unveiled in the temples. It is said to have originated at the time of Lord Krishna when Radha used to create beautiful patterns out of leaves and flowers creating decorations for Krishna. The story goes that following Radha, other Gopis too indulged in the art to impress the lord. Consequently, the art grew in the 16th and 17th centuries when the walls and floors of temples were decorated with Sanjhi.
