Backdrop of Shrinath Ji

Designed by Susmita Datta NID, Paldi- Ahemdabad

Picchwaipaintings are a kind of textile art found in Nathdwara temple behind the Srinathji Statue used as a wall cloth. There are 12 types of themes in Picchwaiused at different times to serve lord Srinathji. Among the 12 themes, I took four of them as inspiration- Lotus collection, Monsoon collection, Peacock collection and Govardhan collection. Each theme has its own colour and grace. Artists have enriched these themes with their own imaginations, colours, grace and forms. The brush painting of the Picchwai art has helped the artisans create their unique identity. Painted Textiles started from late fourteenth century for ritual purpose on palm leaf, cloth etc. This painted textile is found in Gujraat, Rajasthan, Andhrapradesh, Malwa, Nepal and Tibet. The Krishna Pichhwaisfrom Nathdwara temple are well known in the textile world. Vallabhachariya was a priest of the Nathdwara temple.

He was an adherent of the non-dualism school of philosophy. He believed the soul is not separate from God, but the awareness of oneness comes through the God’s grace (pushti) and the revelation comes through his divine play (lila). The devotion takes the from of sewa. In this pustimarg, this sewa is an elaborate affair for Krishna is a living entity to be cared for as a beloved child. The main pusthimargis swarupaat Nathdwara, which shows Krishna holding up Mount Govardhana to protect the people of Vrajawho sought shelter from the torrential rainstorm of an angry Indra. Krishna saves their lives from Indra as Indra is the lord of heavens and the rain.
