Ganga (Alwar School)
Painting on paper
8 x 6" / 20 x 15 cms  
Recent reproduction of a traditional miniature 
Part of the जल देवी (Water Goddess) Curation as part of The Monsoon Festival 16

An image of Ganga painted in the Alwar school style (a recent reproduction), a style closely affiliated with the Jaipur school. Ganga ji is seated on a golden throne, dressed in white and gold with elaborate embellishments. In her four-handed avatar, she holds a lotus in one hand  and a kalash (a water pot, typical of all water goddesses) in the other hand. Her impeccable personage is further enhanced by a छत्र (overhead canopy) and आभा (halo). She is seated on a crocodile, subscribing to classical Gangetic iconography. Note how the river is imaged, flowing between two hills; and how the image of Ganga is placed at the water-horizon-source, to give an impression of her emanating from the source. 
(The work will be shipped without a frame, packed flat in board)
