Hanuman : Ravi Varma Lithograph
Raja Ravi Varma is an iconic Indian artist. He is famous for his unique oil paintings, mainly depicting scenes from epics like Mahabharata and Ramayana. His work combined western realism with Hindu iconography, painting deities, Gods, and Goddess in the likeness of humankind.
He was instrumental in making affordable lithographs of his paintings available to the public. His work increased the involvement of the common people with fine art and moulded their artistic tastes.
This is an original Ravi Varma lithograph from the press in Karla, Lonavala, Maharashtra. It was printed by Anant Shivaji Desai for sale in Moti Bazar Mumbai. This press printed Ravi Varma’s artwork between 1906 and 1945.
This Lithograph depicts a scene from the Ramayana. Here, Lord Hanuman is heroically carrying a mountain top from the Donagiri range in the Himalayas to aid Lakshman who was badly injured while fighting Ravana’s son Indrajit. This mountain is home to a specific medicinal plant called Sanjeevi. This plant is said to have miraculous healing properties and can bring a human back from near death. This plant is a complete mystery, people have spent years in search of it and it hasn’t been identified to this day.
