Essentially serving as devotional icons, the themes of most of these paintings are Hindu gods and goddesses, as well as saints. Crafted with meticulous care, Tanjore paintings are unique. What sets them apart from other Indian paintings are the embellishments made over the basic drawings with precious and semi-precious stones as well as the relief work which gives them a three dimensional effect.
