About the Artwork +

Vidya Soni portrays the rich tapestry of tradition and devotion in the heart of Rajasthan. This captivating Mandana painting brings to life the essence of Gangaur Pooja, a colourful and significant festival celebrated with fervour and devotion throughout the region. Gangaur Pooja is a revered celebration dedicated to the worship of Gana, the revered Lord Shiva, and his consort Gauri, symbolising the divine union of the divine couple. Vidya Soni has skillfully translated the spirit of this auspicious occasion onto her canvas. At the heart of the artwork lies a distinctive design—the exquisite motif of Shakarpare, a traditional Indian sweet. The Mandana's diamond-shaped patterns intricately resemble the form of Shakarpare, with each line and curve meticulously hand-painted by Vidya Soni. The artistic precision mirrors the meticulous preparation of this delectable sweet, further emphasising its significance in the celebration. The artwork is a vivid testament to the deep-rooted faith and rich heritage that make Gangaur Pooja a truly remarkable and cherished festival in the heart of Rajasthan.

    Art Form

    Mandana

    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.
