SANJHI ART
11
SANJHI ART
•Sanjhi’ is a word derived from words like ‘Sajja’, ‘Shringar’ and ‘Sajavat’ which all means
‘decoration’.
•Sanjhi art is rooted in the folk culture of Uttar Pradesh (Mathura).
It was taken to its glory by the Vaishnava temples in the 15th and 16th century.
•Sanjhi came to be regarded as a highly refined art form practiced by the Brahmin priests.
•The term Sanjhi is derived from the Hindi word Sandhya, the period of dusk with which the art
form is typically art form is associated.
12
•Sanjhi art is the traditional art of stenciling from Mathura, Krishna's home town.
•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 the 17th centuries, when the walls and floors of temples were
decorated with Sanjhi motifs.
• The art depicts Indian mythological stories in numerous forms with predominant focus on
Krishna’s Leela.
•Folklore tells us that the origins of this art form lie with Radhe who made Sanjhi Rangoli
using natural colors, along with flowers, leaves and colored stones to woo Krishna.
•The other Gopis soon followed suit, also making intricate designs to impress Krishna.
THEMES AND MOTIFS
13
•To create a Sanjhi design, stencils are made on paper using specially designed scissors.
•These stencils are placed on flat surfaces or water, where the rangoli has to be drawn.
•Dry colors are then shifted on to the surface. Filling the colors and lifting the stencils are
as critical as cutting the design.
•Peacocks, bullock carts, horses, cows and trees are some of the common motifs used.
•Sanjhi paper art, a traditional art form of stenciled paper cutting, serves as a conduit of
expression for artist’s devotion to Krishna.
TECHNIQUE
14
CONTEMPORARY USES
•The number of artisans practicing Sanjhi making are limited. The demand for their work
in its traditional form has been declining over the years. In a search for an alternative
employment for their skills, they have turned their hand to making Sanjhi for
contemporary use.
•Sanjhi templates are now used as stencils made of plastic sheets for decorative bindis ,
henna patterns and sari borders.
• As a form of art work Sanjhi are also used in greeting cards, cutout partitions, coasters,
trays and other decorative items.
•When used in Lampshades and in window partitions, the Sanjhi comes to life when lit up
and the design depicted glows with light.
• Here the intricate and delicate cuts of the Sanjhi itself and not the Rangoli is the
centerpiece of creation.
•The Delhi Crafts Council has been doing extensive work in reviving and popularizing
the languishing craft of Sanjhi in the past of few years and given a much-needed boost to
the craft and the artisans.
