Buy Lord Ganesha Emboss Painting in Tanjore Style. Indian scriptures are filled with awe-inspiring stories of Ganesha, the pot-bellied, elephant-headed son of gods Shiva and Parvati. He is considered to be the destroyer of obstacles and bestower of prosperity, wisdom, and abundance, and is worshipped before starting up any important tasks.
Many believe that he may have tribal origins and the elephant head may be inspired by masks used in the initiation rituals of ancient jungle tribes. The very first artworks depicting Lord Ganesha date back to the second century. Today, the supreme destroyer of evil is considered to be one of the most versatile art subjects.
Numerous Ganesha-inspired sculptures, coins, handicrafts, jewelry, and paintings are popular both in India and abroad. While some believe Ganesha’s paintings to have a positive effect on the energy of a place, still others like how their beauty and mysticism captivate one and all. Many serious art collectors even consider them priceless additions to their personal collections.
Tanjore Painting, as we know it today, originated under the patronage of the Maratha rulers of Thanjavur in the 17th century CE and flourished under the most famous ruler of the line, Maharaja Serfoji II (1777-1832 CE), a great patron of learning and the arts.
Tanjore Painting is the only painting to have EMBOSS on it. That is, the painting has areas that are ELEVATED from the surface. The other feature is the Real Gold Foil used to stick on the EMBOSSED areas – 22-carat gold foil is used. It is made of real gold and it never fades.
Making Tanjore paintings in the old way is a very time-intensive process and increases Tanjore painting costs significantly, and as such most traditional artists cannot make a living from this work
