110-003 Deccan Pichwai from hyderabad
Pichhwai (also pichhavai, pichhvai, pechhavai etc) are large devotional Hindu painted pictures, normally on cloth, which portray Krishna. They are mainly made to hang in Hindu temples of the Pushtimarg..
Aurangabad was another area associated with them.
The purpose of Pichhwais, other than artistic appeal, is to narrate tales of Krishna to the illiterate.
Temples have sets with different images, which are changed according to the calendar of festivals celebrating the deity.
The word Pichhwai stands for hanging at the back (Sanskrit word "Pichh" means back and "wais" means hanging). Nathdwara painting covers these and similar works in other genres, especially Indian miniature paintings. Like the Pushtimarg tradition, they originated in the Deccan, but are now mainly associated with Western India...
