This painting beautifully depicts how complete Shiv and Parvati are with each other. Their powers get intensified when they stand together as the male and female energies. The detailing in their faces brings in character and strength to the painting. The colors and intricate work classify the painting as a splendid effort by the artist.
Scroll painting or PataChitra is a notable art form, coming from the tribal villages of West Bengal. These scrolls were visual accompaniments to stories told through songs and ballads. The Ramayan, tribal folklore and many other mythological stories have come alive with these beautifully illustrated scrolls. These paintings are traditionally made with natural mineral and vegetable colors. Delightful and earthy, these paintings reflect the ancient tradition of story telling in India.
