Steeped in tradition, pichvais is a 400 year old art form that originated in the holy town of Nathdwara, near Udaipur. The name ‘Pichvais’ derives from the words, ‘pich’ meaning back and ‘vai’, meaning wall hanging; these are intricately hand painted, embroidered, or woven on textiles. In veneration of Lord Krishna, and as adornment in temples, pichvais weave an untold magic of the Lord’s life with pleasing colours and beautifully depicted serene expressions, or ‘bhav’. Among the pichwais, an intriguing ensemble is the celebration of the autumnal festival of Sharad Purnima, the swing ceremony of Radha and Krishna. Replete with illustrations of beautiful gopinis worshipping Shrinathji, the scene is set in a glade of mango and banana trees inhabited by birds and peacocks, under a starry, full moon sky, with deities blessing the tableau in flying vehicles
