Pichwai: The Dance of Krishna

Pichwai: The Dance of Krishna

Ornate, handpainted temple hangings that bring alive the legends of the deity 

 

The word Pichwai has its roots in the Sanskrit pich (behind) and wai (hanging). A traditional art form that emerged in the 17th Century at the Nathdwara temple in Rajasthan, Pichwais are intricate paintings dedicated to Shrinathji and are typically hung behind the idol of the deity in local shrines. These elaborately handpainted artworks celebrate the different moods and expressions of Krishna, and mostly depict temple rituals like the adornment (shringaar) of Shrinathji according to the seasons or festivals in the Pushtimarg calendar: Janamashtami and Gopashtami, for example. A popular depiction of Krishna found in Pichwais is the Chappan Bhog (a feast of 56 delicacies) rendition as an offering to the deity. Elements of the Indian monsoon like the peacock, the lotus, and even his beloved cows are featured prominently and repeatedly. 

 

Over time, Pichwai painting came to be practiced in various local styles. The most recognisable among these are the Nathdwara style known for its expressive portraitures, the Deccan or Hyderabadi defined by a liberal use of gold and silver leaf, the dynamic and fluid Kota-Bundi style, and the Kishangarh style inspired by Mughal miniatures. 

 

As an endeavour to preserve and revive this sacred art form, we present contemporary renditions of traditional Pichwai paintings in collaboration with The House Of Things, curated exclusively on our web boutique for a limited time.
