Painted Mata-ni-Pachedi: Jogini Mata

Rs. 31,780.00

Painting is an act of worship for Chitara families of the wandering Vaghari community who have evolved a form of art, devoted to the Goddess Mother or Mata.

Mata-ni-Pachedi’ in Gujarati translates to ‘that which enshrines the Goddess Mother’. Prohibited from entering temples, they make temporary outdoor shrines of painted deities on cloth. These are hand-painted in a prescribed format, with a powerful central image.

The artist draws directly on cloth without any premeditated sketching. Traditional madder red and iron black natural dyes are painted on hand spun hand woven khadi cotton, and washed in the waters of the Sabarmati River of Ahmedabad.

This piece depicts Jogini Mata, surrounded by Amba Mata, Meladi Mata, and Bahuchar Mata.
