Tree of Life: Kalamkari painting by Harinath.N
Tree of life is one of the most common motifs used in almost every art form. It depicts the interdependence of life on earth, of the flora and fauna, a reminder that neither can exist without the other. The painting depicts the national bird of India, peacock, along with the tree of life. It has slender neck and long lush feathers.
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
