About the Painting
The Painting depicts Durga Mata. Durga is depicted in the Hindu pantheon as a goddess riding a lion or tiger, with many arms each carrying a weapon. She combats evils and demonic forces that threaten peace and prosperity.

The Artist
Sanjay Manubhai Chitara is a National Awardee and part of one of the last surviving families who paint the Mata ni Pachedi. His family, who are Devi Pujaks, 

(followers of the mother Goddess) trace their association with the art of painting ritual cloth back three centuries.

Product Process:
Mata ni Pachedi literally means “behind the mother goddess”, and is a cloth that constitutes a temple of the goddess. It is a painting and art form from Gujrat. 

Sanjay Chitara has moved away from the traditional palette of maroon and black made from oxidized iron and palm sugar and experiments with turmeric, henna and indigo to create a more varied colour scheme still using the age old methods of extracting colour from natural materials.
