Here's another endangered species. Savour these fine Nakashi work exhibitions while they last. Le Cafe D'art is organising a exhibition of Nakashi Work by D Vaikuntham of Cherial at its cafe premises on Road No. 1, Banjara Hills from 20th August to 15th September.

The exhibition is an exhibition-cum-sale of Nakashi Painting Works by Danalakota Vaikuntham from Cheriyal, Warangal District. You can find his works from the epics, The Ramayana, Bhagwad Gita and the Mahabharata. In addition, you would find some works on Lord Krishna playing with damsels or entrancing cows with his flute, and many more exquisite paintings.

Nakashi is an art etched on cloth with natural water colours, the Cheriyal works of art or scroll paintings, as they are popularly called, belong to a five-century old tradition that is now becoming extinct.

It is prepared on a particular kind of Khadi cloth, which is first coated thrice, with a paste of rice starch, white clay, edible gum and powdered tamarind seed, which gives it the required stiffness and also seals the pores, in turn facilitating colour retention.

The colours are derived from natural sources, which do not fade for at least a century.
