” A person’s mind and heart has to be totally involved during Sanjhi art, especially while carving Thakurjee (Lord Krishna) with the right expression.”




About Sanjhi Art:

Sanjhi art is the traditional art of stenciling from Mathura, Krishna’shometown. Known for its inherent spiritual implications that reach beyond immediate aesthetic appeal, it is considered to be one of the finest arts of spiritual expression. The art grew in the 16th and 17th centuries, when the walls and floors of temples were decorated with Sanjhi motifs. The term Sanjhi is derived from the Hindi word sandhya, the period of dusk with which the art form is typically associated. The art depicts Indian mythological stories in numerous forms, with predominant focus on Krishna’s Leela.
