Welcome to Geetha Murali's Tanjore Paintings website.
A painting is not just a piece of art. It is a fountain which gushes forth with traditional divinity personified by the skills and mysticism of the artist. Nowhere else, is this better portrayed than the ethnic creations of Tanjore paintings.
Tanjore paintings which depict mainly the scenes from the ancient scriptures of Hindu religion are one of the most famous style of paintings from south India. These paintings are unique due to the harmony of colours, the design and the traditional techniques used with meticulous attention to details.
A traditional Tanjore Painting is based on a theme, associated with a Hindu God. Adorned with Gold Foil, stones and semi precious stones, it is created in various sizes and takes about 2-3 month’s time for completion. Each item involves a lot of patience and involvement.
