Product Details

Garba Dance is a popular folk Dance of Gujarat. A graceful, rather unique dance associated with the raas lila of Krishna and the gopis (female cowherds). It is believed that Lord Krishna popularized the Ras dance, Usha, the grand daughter-in-law of Lord Krishna gets the credit for popularizing the Lasya Nritya, which came to be known as Garba Dance. This dance is performed by ladies on the Navaratri days, Sharad Purnima, Vasant Panchami, Holi and such other festive occasions. The word Garba is derived from the word Garbha Deep meaning a lamp inside a perforated earthen pot. The light inside the perforated earthen pot symbolised the embryonic life. In this folk dance, ladies place the pot with the lamp on their heads and move in circles, singing in time measure by clapping their palms or snapping their fingers, to the accompaniment of folk instruments. Formerly associated with the legend of Krishna, Garbha is now a regular feature during the Navratri puja (nine nights in honor and worship of the goddess Durga). Here this painting depicts a couple doing 'Garba' where a man carryies 'Dhol' and a woman carring two 'Dandias' in her hand. Amazingly crafted this painting in colage base to give a different look. Collage, which is derived from the French word "coller" meaning glue, is an art of attaching substances of different types, shapes, sizes, colors and textures to a base to form a piece of art. This wooden painting is crafted with skillfully arranged small wooden blocks of three different colors to form a lovely image.
