Sunday FUNday: Embellishing Elephants

The Ravi Varma Fine Art Lithographic Press in Bombay reproduced paintings of Hindu deities, scenes from the great Indian epics the Mahabharata and Ramayana, and more by Raja Ravi Varma and other painters. These prints, more affordable than original paintings, were soon present in homes across India. The images were embellished as acts of devotion with bits of silk, pearls, glitter, and golden threads. View Laxmi, Saraswati, Rama, Krishna, and many others embellished by different hands in different ways in the exhibition Transcendent Deities of India, and then come to the studio to embellish an image of an Indian elephant.
