Thanjavur Painting of Lord Venkateshwara - 11.5 inches x 9.5 inches
Product SKU : TLH-55373

These magnificent Thanjavur Balaji paintings portray Lord's image has four arms, signifying the four stages that may be found in every form of development of life. The upper right arm holds Sudarsana Chakra (discus) and right arm holds Pancha-Janya (Conch). The lower right hand is in Varada hasta (boon giving) pose and lower left hand is in Katyavalambita pose, turned inwards. The frame is made from hardwood and is in the Chettinad style. Some parts of the painting are embossed by painting with a mixture of chalk powder and arabic gum (gesso work). This painting took a master craftsman almost a month to complete.

Thanjavur (Tanjore) is an ancient city built in the fertile delta of the Cauvery river in Tamil Nadu, around 350 kilometres from Chennai (Madras). It is here that this style of painting was developed during the rule of the Marathas during the 17th & 19th centuries. Raja Sarabhoji (Serfoji II), who belonged to the Bhonsle clan of Marathas and descended from Chhatrapati Shivaji’s half brother Venkoji, played a crucial role in nurturing this art form. 

The easiest way to differentiate between Thanjavur & Mysore paintings is that the former uses a lot of gemstones and gold leaf, whereas the latter has more intricate details and doesn’t have any gemstones.
