Sculpture of ‘Natraja’

A sculpture aims to invoke a lot more than just appreciation for its shape. It is one of the most difficult forms of expressive art and India holds an elaborate history of possessing pieces from various times, places and styles. Apart from these elements, each sculpture has its own distinct persona and most importantly, the artist’s own form of expression! The Great Eastern Home displays exclusive pieces of art and artifacts that are centuries old. The sculpture pictured here is of the Hindu god Shiva in the form of Natraja. Natraja in Sanskrit means ‘the King of dance’. It is an 18th century sculpture in wood from Rajasthan. You will find this piece arranged among the other sculptures at The Great Eastern Home. You can also see other pieces from our collection at www.thegreateasternhome.com

Ramji Dongre

Viewing Ramji Dongre’s art transports one to a world of stories and ballads with the compelling force of its colours and imagery. Hailing from a small village, Ramji’s work is steeped in all that is mystical, mysterious and supernatural; a throwback to our myths, while they also create new ones.

A reflection , not only of the world of dreams, but also of rural craft traditions. Ramji believes that the canvas is like an open sky, waiting to capture all things, living and non-living, without any fear of boundaries. His artworks consist of a single main subject juxtaposed with smaller, supporting elements, creating vivid contrasts. Using saturated backgrounds to dramatically set-off unusual tonal values, Ramji rivets his audience’s eyes to his creations. Every time that happens, he succeeds in pulling off the magic illusion.

Vipin Singh Rajput

Vipin Singh Rajput’s art is a quest for answers to the perceptions and conflicts of the conscious and the unconscious mind. It is like stepping into the innermost recesses of the mind and losing oneself in surreal landscapes and morphed forms.

The deep tonal backdrops focus the eyes on the abstractions portraying dream images that convey hope as depicted in ‘Birth’ or grief, as seen in ‘Vilap’. His works with concentric circles, bindus and lines, allude to an almost otherworldly calm. Some images create aesthetic experiences that imply spaces beyond borders, while others make the most of spaces within, even while creating tension and curiosity. The organic outlines of creatures that are part-human and part-animal are a symbolic commentary on conflicting passions and ideals.
