Durga Mata, her Chhatradhar, and her Devotees, a handmade narrative in Mata ni Pachedi
The big picture is always strengthened by its smaller stories. Detailed and with an aura of dynamism, this painting is a treasure trove of tales of the Vaghari community and culture. Each image of each person shares a different story, just a slight variation in movement or garb informing our interpretation. Here, the artisan has managed to intricately capture not just his divine Goddess, but also the traditional icons of the time and the symbols of all those who are devoted to her. Mata-ni-Pachedi, an artform created by the nomadic Vaghari community of Gujarat, literally translates to "behind the Mother Goddess". To truly appreciate this handcrafted product, we would like to invite you to meet the artisan, Vasant Manubhai Chitara and also see this masterpiece, in person (of course virtually). Don't let distance get in your way, drop us a message on WA Business 6364665722 or an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we can arrange a call to see this authentic handmade painting.Dimensions
