Due to the my previous birth karmas, I was born inside my mother’s womb,
And placed between urine, excreta and heat, everything was sere unhappiness
And burnt a lot by the heat of the digestive fire.
And possibly none can describe the sufferings that I underwent there,
And So O Shiva Shambho! Be pleased to pardon my fault, sins, Oh Mahadeva !! #me and #myself in #cheriyal#indian#folk#painting#shivalinga#copper#idolphotography
Our storytelling journey with the students of GBSS Mehrauli No. 3 and Koti Kale Khan Primary School is coming to a full circle with this beautiful exhibition. Both sets of students have learnt "Cheriyal" an artform from Andhra Pradesh. They have also worked hard on their respective paintings and stories for the past 6 months. This exhibition will display the works of our students as well as others who have been on a similar journey. The idea here estentially is to preserve the artform by introducing it into our classrooms and telling stories through it.
It has been a beautiful journey for the kids and their educators, and you are welcome to be a part of it.
DM me for the registrations for the workshop/activities you'd like to be a part of.
Life as it was, in a #village - #handpainted with minute details, using #natural#colors on cloth canvas, in Cheriyal style. Tell-a-Tale is the essence of #Cheriyal Scrolls. Notice the various activities going on, in a typical village day - giving alms to needy and worthy, daily household chores, farming, basket weaving, hunting - all of which were part of yesteryear's villages! Happy at Heart are Happy in Life! Get home this vibrant slice of rural life, and discover the joys of simple living! #art#folkart#india#indianart#incredibleindia#handpainted Link: http://www.kalavithi.com/village-scene-cheriyal
