About the Painting
Krishna, Sanskrit Kṛṣṇa, one of the most widely revered and most popular of all Indian divinities, worshipped as the eighth incarnation (avatar, or avatara) of the Hindu God Vishnu and also as a supreme god in his own right.

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.
