Tree of Life & peacocks, Mata ni Pachedi painting by Dilip Chittara
Tree of life is a symbol of universal interconnectedness and of forms of life that are there on earth. In the painting, we see in centre a goddess inside the tree and surrounding her are different gods.
In the foreground, the artist has shown two peacocks as if almost guarding the tree, and we see birds in the sky flying around the tree.
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).
