About The Craft
A four-hundred year old art form, Pichhwai are devotional pictures found on cloth or paper which portray Lord Krishna. The word Pichhwai stands for hanging at the back (Sanskrit word "Pichh" means back and "wais" means hanging). Pichhwai paintings are big sized paintings done on cotton cloth using natural colours and are hung behind the idol of Lord Shrinath Ji to depict his leelas.
About The Artist
Mahesh Vishnoi is one among the last generation of makers of Pichhwai. His work has been especially vital to the craft's endurance. This year, the Government of Rajasthan has shortlisted him for the State award.
