Jal Mata (Water Goddess)

Part of the जल देवी (Water Goddess) Curation as part of The Monsoon Festival 16

We now encounter another image of Jal Mata (literally "Mother Water"); executed recently in the Jaipur folk style. The Jaipur folk style, about which not much has been said or written, is characteristic of quick, folksy, sometimes naive renditions; as opposed to the more refined proscenium Jaipur school style of miniatures with its refined lines and elaborate detailing. This water goddess resides in a water body (the curvilinear wave pattern used to depict water is used to depict this). She is seated on a fish. Like we see in the previous image, her hands seems to be blessing the devotee / viewer in a benevolent graceful gesture.
