About the Artwork +

Manoranjan Chitrakar portrays a vibrant Bengal Pattachitra painting with the resplendent Goddess Durga at the centre, her multifaceted presence serving as the focal point of this magnificent artwork. At the very centre of the composition stands the goddess herself, Durga, exuding an aura of divine power and grace. Her form is vivid and commanding as she brandishes her iconic trident and rides her vahana, the mighty lion. Surrounding the central depiction of Durga, the painting beautifully captures the goddess in her many avatars, each carefully distinguished by their unique symbolism and characteristics. In one corner, she transforms into Kali, the dark and formidable aspect of herself. In another, she assumes the role of Ganesh Janani, the nurturing mother of Lord Ganesha; her demeanour is soft and affectionate, cradling the elephant-headed deity in her loving embrace. Further, she emerges as the serene and devoted consort of Lord Shiva, her presence evoking both her role as the divine partner of the destroyer and her serene, maternal aspect as the mother of Kartikeya and Ganesha. The artwork serves as a visual testament to the enduring significance of Durga in Bengali culture and the boundless love and devotion she inspires, while also celebrating the artistic talent and tradition that thrive in the region.

Manoranjan

Manoranjan Chitrakar blue-tick

"In West Bengal, the word chitrakar refers to pattachitra painters. We have taken Chitrakar as our last name for hundreds of years" says Manoranjan aka Manu Chitrakar, who has been painting for 30 years since the age of 15. He enjoys depicting societal themes in his works. Manuji has travelled across India, as well as to Sweden and Paris. The Bengal Pattachitra is a visual and oral art tradition practised by West Bengal's Patuas or Chitrakars. Patua painters, who are Muslim by faith, represent a distinct and secular art history. They make a living by painting and singing stories from Hindu mythology, local folklore, Sufi tradition, and modern issues. Though the origins of the Patua tradition have been difficult for art historians to trace, some suggest the oral form dates back to the 10th or 11th century CE. The physical evidence of a scroll, on the other hand, does not occur until the 18th century CE.
