House of Gharats Limited Edition Kalighat Cat - Kalighat Silk Scarf Collection is the perfect opportunity to indulge in wearing or gifting a piece of art. This collection is a custom illustrated artwork made with the finest silk twill in Italy

Satire, was common in the humorous folk art rhymes and songs. The Cat with the fish in the mouth is often interpreted as an illustration of a Bengali proverb. The composition suggests the cat is a satirical representation of a false ascetic who despite renouncing the world is unable to control its lust.

This collection is inspired by the Kalighat paintings that originated in Bengal, India in the 19th century. Original artist practitioners of this art belonged to the ‘patua’ class of rural Bengal who specialized in painting clay figures, dolls and scroll pictures of Hindu epics and local legends. Kalighat paintings came about in the nineteenth century when artists realized that there was an emerging market, for what came to be known as ‘souvenir paintings’ among the pilgrims who visited the Kalighat temple. Kalighat painting developed in the vicinity of the Kali temple in Kolkata, India in the mid-nineteenth century. The paintings were completed on mill-made paper, stripped of decoration and traditionally feature only one or two characters. Kalighat paintings were some of the first to incorporate secular themes, while also showing satirical depictions of the growing European influence on Kolkata. This art form has been traditionally passed down from one generation to the other. It is now a dying art form with only a handful of surviving Kalighat painters trying to modernize it through their strokes introducing surprise elements into familiar images.
