ABOUT TANJORE PAINTINGS
Tanjore paintings are classical south Indian painting style, that originated from Tanjore in Tamil Nadu back in the 17th century. These paintings are characterized by their rich and vivid colors, simple iconic composition, glittering gold foils overlaid on delicate but extensive gesso work and inlay of glass beads and pieces or very rarely precious and semi-precious gems. They essentially symbolize ancient themes of traditional gods and goddesses.
This is 100% handmade Tanjore painting, however, some variation in color texture and design may occur.
The word ‘pancamukha’ is a portmanteau of ‘panca’, which means five, and ‘mukha’, which means face. The origin of the five-faced roopa (form) of Lord Hanuman lies in the Ramayana, specifically in the rescue mission He undertook for Rama and Lakshmana when they were caught in patala. The ten arms of the Lord convey His great strength and yogic prowess. Each pair of hands is a distinct colour, in keeping with the complexion of Hayagreeva, Garuda, Hanuman, Narasimha, and Varaha, respectively.
Tanjore paintings are believed to be auspicious and preserved as valuable antiques. The paintings are painted by expert artisans who empathize on precision and detail. These paintings make your walls beautiful and gives it a royal touch. Also, they are an ideal gifting option for any occasion
