Painting on paper
9.5 x 7.5" / 24.5 x 19.5 cms
(Jaipur Folk Style)
Part of the जल देवी (Water Goddess) Curation as part of The Monsoon Festival 16
The artist choses a different mode to portray the river goddess in Ganga 5 : the figure is drawn differently, and she holds an axe and trident in place of the classic lotus and water pot. The tail of the Makara is stylised and charmingly elongated.
The folk style is characteristic of naive drawing, unplanned compositions, crude detailing and sometimes may not even be accurate in sticking to the rules of iconography; but it retains a magnetic charm in its primitive rendition of figures and its quick intimate rendering of a theme.
