Lovers - Inspired By Patachitra, Silk Scarf Collection

'Lovers' is a traditionally hand-drawn artwork, designed as a scarf made in Italy. This practice has evolved from the centuries-old art form of Patachitra (paintings) unique to Bengal and many other neighboring regions. Patuas (painters) in the nineteenth century, had begun to portray in a new satirical style and medium, the new urban Bengali 'Babu Culture' which had emerged in nineteenth-century Calcutta, during the British Raj. Babu’s were rich Zamindar’s (landowners) who were swayed by lust and wealth. Patuas commonly painted figures of deities, gentry and ordinary people with deft and vigorously flowing lines using brush and ink from the lamp. There were romantic depictions of women. There were satirical paintings lampooning the hypocrisies of the newly rich and the changing roles of men and women after the introduction of education for women.

Traditionally, Patachitra’s were scroll paintings. The artwork and narrative were performed through songs for their audiences. From around the 13th century, Patuas (painters) of Bengal have walked from village to village singing moral and mythological stories, unfurling their painted scrolls to illustrate their songs, the lyrics, and tunes of which they composed themselves. The Patuas were the chief source of entertainment in the villages and their art was a combination of storytelling, painting, and singing. Since their stories carried an overtone of just and moral behavior, the Patua played the dual role of mobile entertainer and social reformer. You may feel inspired frame the scarf as an artwork that adorns your walls.
