Rudratandava, With Rudrayantra And Invocation

Rudratandava, With Rudrayantra And Invocation

Rudratandava, With Rudrayantra And Invocation

Madhubani paintings are the most distinguished of Indian folk arts. Like all folk arts they originated in the hands of rural women, who were simply looking to beautify their humble mud dwellings. They have evolved to feature a style and distinctiveness that could be gleaned from the composition that you see on this page. Like most works of folk art, the theme in question is devotional. It features the handsome Lord Rudra, captured in the midst of His powerful tandava.

The lines that define the subject are rudimental. The same are filled in with solid colours drawn out of a limited but expressive colour palette. A flash of pastel basics meets the eye at first glance - blues, oranges, blacks, and yellows. Such an earthy finish is explained by the technique that lies behind Madhubani paintings: drawing implements fashioned from broken twigs and dyes extracted from organic materials found around the house (such as soot from the angithi and ochre of the lamp). The Lord dances with His weight pressing down on Apasmara, the very image of ignorance.

The flaying locks of the chaturbhujadhari Lord make for an aureole. He is flanked by a nadi-serpent to His right, a gorgeous green creeper to His left. In the foreground are a rudrayantra with the chant ‘Om Namah Shivaya’ (Lord Shiva invocation) painted underneath the same and a wrathful roopa of the victorious Lord.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
