A lively, vividly coloured Ganesha painting to brighten up your home or office space. A Kerala mural executed on a mobile canvas, this painting is a fine, authentic example of this traditional art form. It depicts a bright-eyed Lord Ganesha seated in lalitasana at the base of a tree trunk. The foreleg of the pendant leg rests on the back of His vahana, the mouse.
Deep scarlet silks wound around His legs. The flowing ends of an ample angavastram. An ornate flame-coloured crown on His head. Lifelike features of the face and digits of the hand and curl of the trunk. This painting bears every hallmark of the Kerala mural idiom, starting from the colour palette to motif and silhouette.
The artisan has paid as much attention to detail when it comes to the background of this Kerala mural. Dense foliage, amidst which stands a wildly growing shoot; hints of a waterbody at the foot of the Lord, from which emerges a couple of lotuses. This goes to show that, despite the decorative appeal of the composition, the textual iconography of the deity is intact.
