The uniqueness of Balaji Tanjore Paintings

November 3, 2016

 

"Whatever actions I perform, by body, mind, senses or intellect. I surrender them at the feet of Sri Narayana."

 

Balaji Tanjore Painting is one of the finest art works one would ever encounter, but rarely appreciated.

 

It highlights the level of craftsmanship involved in making the embossed areas representing the rich ornaments, weapons, symbolism, mudras and so many innumerable minute details of the painting.

 

 

 

 

It can only be appreciated if the painting is observed closely. In addition to the emboss work, a lot of effort is involved in black-lining the embossed areas to highlight the relief work done in the painting.

 

 

 

 

Stone work involved, the choice of colours and the neutral face of Lord Vishnu are typical of Balaji Tanjore Paintings.

 

 

 

 

Teak wood mani type frame give the paintings a classic look.
