In this religious painting, We see Serowali Mata or Vaishno Mata as she is popularly known as in her decorated attire, adorned with jewels, wearing a crown. We see her having 14 hands, which is inspired from her different forms. She is shown holding her mythological ride, The tiger. The composition is engaging, in the background we see a banyan tree taking the majority of the space, made with detailed patterns.

Mata ni pachedi literally means “behind the mother goddess”, and is a cloth that constitutes a temple of the goddess. When people of the nomadic Vaghari community of Gujarat were barred from entering temples, they made their own shrines with depictions of the Mother Goddess on cloth. This ingenuous solution is believed to be the origin of Mata ni Pachedi, the sacred art, which is now revered by all.

Dilip Chittara is a 5th generation Mata ni Pachedi artist. Dilip ji is both a national and state award winner. His is one of the 10 families left who are practicing this art and reside in Ashoknagar(near Ahmedabad in Gujarat).
