This beautiful vintage print is of Shravan Kumar. It is beautifully decorated in sequins.
Shravan Kumar is a character in the great Hindu epic Ramayana. While taking his blind and disabled parents on a pilgrimage through the holy Hindu shrines, he is mistaken for a boar by Lord Rama's father, who is also the King. After fatally shooting Shravan with an arrow, the king apologizes to Shravan's parents.
Sadly the glass was damaged in transit from India (small crack top let). You could either remove the glass or replace it.
Size: 55cm x 40cm
This print has gone through many monsoons (with months of humidity), so it may have some staining and discoloration, along with some chips in the frame, that come with daily use and age. The print is mounted in its original frame and glass which is very rare to come across these days. The print has been left exactly how it was from its time of use. The glass might be marked and dusty but this all adds to it's beautiful and Holy life of being worshiped daily. They are also very fragile and the nails in the wood on the back may be lose.
In the period following independence in 1947 in India, the religious print business in India grew dramatically in its scale and diversity. All the prints I import from India are from this era and are a lot more colorful and bold in comparison to the very early prints in the late 1800's.
