Pattachitra inspired Matsya Avatara

By | January 11, 2020

My love and interest for folk art has brought me today, to Orissa’s Pattachitra art form. Starting the series on Dasavatharam. Today’s Painting is Matsya Avatara, Avatar of Vishnu. 

Matsya in Sanskrit, मत्स्य,fish. This Avatar is the first, in the ten primary avatars of Hindu god Vishnu. Matsya is described to have rescued Manu and earthly existence from a great deluge and there are also one of the first beings to evolve on the Earth.
