I am Sivabalan from India and my Company is SUV Exports.
We manufacture and export South India traditional Handmade "Tanjore Gold Foil Paintings".
We welcome you to the unique and colourful world of Thanjavur paintings (also known as Tanjore Gold Foil Paintings). This school of paintings originated in Thanjavur (a place located in deep down South India) during the reign of the Marathas in the 16th century. Today, this tradition is kept alive by a few hundred dedicated artists mostly based in Thanjavur, Tamil Nadu, India.
These paintings are done on teak wooden board on which Layering of clay will get three dimensional embossed effects. Each painting is done stage by stage using semi-precious stones to decorate.
22 CARAT GOLD LEAF is pasted on the top, which gives a rich look to the painting. The drawing of the figures is monumental and robust and eyes are almond shaped. The portrayal of the figures in the paintings is breathtakingly brilliant.
The paintings are the scenes from the ancient scriptures of Hindu religion and the most famous style of South India. They are unique and rich in harmony of colors, designs, and traditional techniques blended with meticulous attention to details.
The paintings decorate the Pooja (Prayer) rooms in residences, Orcades in major Hotels and Lobbies in Corporate Offices. They also make nice gifts for Festivals, Weddings and other special occasions.
