As much as I appreciated the intricacy of the Pichwai paintings, the sheer number of elements in each painting always overwhelmed me. I wanted to de-construct these intricate marvels and explore the deep metaphorical symbols of each element in its simple singularity. These sculptural murals celebrate  "Charan"(feet), "Gaay" (cow), "Kamal" (lotus), "Chand"(moon), "Vriksha" (tree) and "Mayura" (peacock)

When we bend down before our gurus, it is not only a mark of submission of ego — it also facilitates the formation of a subtle transmission of energies.

A symbol of the earth. They provide so much nourishment- in the form of milk for food and dung for fuel - and need little in return.

Reflecting inner knowledge and the souls capacity for reflection and adaptation. The phases of the moon symbolize immortality and eternity, enlightenment.


Symbolizing, aspiration and patience, a constant purpose and acceptance of the different seasons. Unlike the impatience of human desire which wants constant transformation.

Symbolizes good fortune and royalty. The Mayura is also the vehicle for Lakshmi(goddess of wealth) and Saraswati(goddess of knowledge), representing immortality and resurrection.

A symbol of human consciousness on the path to spiritual enlightenment, the lotus also signifies rebirth and purity. The lotus rises from muddy waters and blooms as a brilliantly pure, gorgeous flower.

The origin of Pichwai paintings dates back to roughly 400 years ago, created as a labor of love to depict the life of one of the Avatars of Lord Krishna, Shreenathji.
