Product Description

Kavad art is an extraordinary art of storytelling, that originated about 500 years ago. The art of Kavad comes from the village of Bassi in Chittorgarh district of Rajasthan. Kavad is a portable wooden shrine painted with stories from the Mahabharata and Ramayana, and folklore that the artisans would carry from village to village and narrate to the villagers. Kavads are made out of mango or Sheesham wood, by a community of Suthars, or carpenters in Mewar, and the storytellers called Kaavadiyas from different places in Rajasthan bring them to their patron’s houses, in a way bringing portable temples to the devotee. The Kaavdiyas consider themselves to be descendants of Lord Vishwakarma, the divine architect of the universe and supreme God of the Arts.
Dwarka Prasad Jangid has been practicing Kavad art for years, following his family tradition. As you open this Kavad, you can see various forms of Vishnu, stories of Krishna and scenes from the Ramayana, painted on each of its doors.
