Painting on glass (series of four)

Dastkari Haat Samiti

A miniature artist is adept at painting images with a fine squirrel-hair brush. When this art is transposed onto a mirror, the work faces the challenge of needing to be painted in reverse. The process involves pasting a mirror sheet at the back and removing the calligraphic portion carefully by hand.

Artist Sneh Gangal has chosen the Kangra school of painting to fill the spaces within Geet Govind, the famed poem of love describing and dedicated to the deity Krishna written in Devanagari calligraphy.
