Manasa Devi (24″ x 36″)

₹ 325 Each, Artist Pawan Kumar

Manasa is a Hindu goddess of snakes, worshipped mainly in Bengal, Jharkhand, other parts of northeastern India and in Uttarakhand chiefly for the prevention and cure of snakebite and also for fertility and prosperity.

Manasa is the sister of shesha and Vasuki, king of Nāgas (serpents) and wife of sage Jaratkaru. She is also the mother of the sage Astika. She is also known as Vishahari (the destroyer of poison), Nityā (eternal) and Padmavati.

Her myths emphasize her bad temper and unhappiness, due to rejection by her father Shiva and her husband, and the hate of her stepmother, Chandi (Shiva’s wife, identified with Parvati in this context). Manasa is depicted as kind to her devotees, but harsh toward people who refuse to worship her.

Indian Folk Art - What is it?

One of the few forms of entertainment in ancient India was folk arts. Indian Folk arts are culturally based art forms that are handed down through generations. These traditional Indian folk arts include music, dancing, puppetry, storytelling, and much more. International Indian Folk Art Gallery mainly focuses on visual arts.

Indian Folk art is a term that refers to the artwork of people who are not professional artists, such as painters or sculptors, and is often created in isolation. The term can refers to Indian Folk art in general.  No formal qualification is required to produce Indian Folk art, and the style of work reflects the culture from which it originates.

India has always been a melting pot of cultures and traditions. It is also one of the few places in the world that have preserved centuries-old Indian Folk art through its heritage and vibrant culture.

The Indian government has taken many initiatives to keep this rich cultural traditional Indian Folk art alive. They are making it easier for future generations to access this heritage which will help diversify the country’s culture even more. However, government alone cannot stop the extinction of these traditional Indian Folk art forms without support from every Indian, living in India or abroad.
