Vishnu also known as Narayana and Hari, is one of the principal deities of Hinduism. Also known as Dashavatara. He is said to have ten primary avatars. The painting depicts Lord Vishnu in blue and inside him are shown his ten Avatars that took birth from him. The artist has used a contrasting colour palette keeping the rest of the background bright orange.

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).
