The meaning of mudra (gesture) in Sanskrit is mudam anandang rati dadati (‘that which gives ultimate joy’). Mudra has been an integral part of Indian heritage and culture since the Vedic period. It has been a part of rituals, dance and drama in India. Mudra, in itself, is a medium of practical knowledge. In every corner of the world, those engaged in Indian dance, yoga or Indian studies are fascinated by mudras and their use. Dancers are particularly inquisitive about mudras. This beautiful set of painting is the collaboration of two folk arts of India i.e. Pattchitra and kalamkari. I made beautiful dancers in Pattchitra style and mudras in kalamkari. This is a set of 6 wooden Plates.
