Vedic Lore : Theres a story behind every posture

There a Story behind every Painting

ATanjore painting is the best form of art when it comes to illustrating the Vedic meaning behind each divine avatar. Made of 24-carat gold foil, Tanjore paintings last for hundreds of years.

Tarang has paintings depicting lord Ganesha, Krishna, Lakshmi, Saraswathi, Shiva-Parvathi, Dashavataram, Asta Lakshmi and various other Hindu deities. Tarang’s artists customise paintings for you and also create paintings of your favourite deity from a photograph.

One of the most popular Tanjores is the classic posture of Lalitha portraying the goddess drawing power from the Brahma, Vishnu and Lord Shiva for her battle with the auras. “The styling and colours of the Lalitha Devi painting resembles the 150-year-old temple paintings. It’s a great feature to emulate the great artists of the Chola era to perfection,” says Jayshree, a Tanjore artist.
