Large Gangaur Doll in Chintz Style Painting
Large Gangaur Doll in Yellow
Gangaur is a festival of people of Rajasthan and is observed throughout the state with great fervor and devotion by womenfolk who worship Gauri, the wife of Lord Shiva. It is the celebration of spring, harvest, and childbearing. Gana is synonym for Lord Shiva and Gaur which stands for Gauri or Parvati who symbolizes Saubhagya (marital bliss). The unmarried women worship her for being blessed with a good husband, while married women do so for the welfare, health, and long life of their husbands and for a happy married life.
In some Rajput families, permanent wooden images are painted afresh every year by reputed painters called matherans on the eve of festival.
This craft is losing its ground to cheaper imitations and very bad quality of workmanship. We work with the last two craftsmen who are over 65 years of age making these small dolls for us. Due to high demand from these artists for the quality of work, production is limited.
