Hand Painted Kalamkari Cushion Cover Depicting Goddess Lakshmi
Hand painted Kalamkari panel has been patched with vibrant colours in this beautiful cushion cover.
The Srikalahasti style of Kalamkari, wherein the "kalam" or pen is used for free hand drawing of the subject and filling in the colours, is entirely hand worked. This style flowered around temples in Andhra Pradesh, India and so had an almost religious identity - scrolls, temple hangings, chariot banners and the like, depicted deities and scenes taken from the great Hindu epics - Ramayana. Mahabarata, Puranas and the mythological classics.
Only natural dyes are used in Kalamkari and it involves seventeen painstaking steps.
Goddess Lakshmi is the Hindu Goddess of wealth, prosperity (both material and spiritual), fortune, and the embodiment of beauty. She is the consort of the God Vishnu. Also called Mahalakshmi, she is said to bring good luck and is believed to protect her devotees from all kinds of misery and money-related sorrows.
Cushion cover measures 18x18 inches or 45 x 45 cm and is backed with a poly-viscose blended contrast fabric.
The cushion is lined with matching cotton lining and has a YKK zipper closing.
