Flags & Cloth Paintings

Flags & Cloth Paintings


In the ancient times, painters and designers created a range of forms and designs on cloth for religious and national ceremonies. Religious paintings on cloth were known as petikada; the inspiration behind them ranged from painted ceilings to the walls of temples. Preserved specimens of cloth paintings indicate the use of bright colours - red, yellow, and white. The topics selected are presented in a continuous narrative form resembling mural paintings.
