Pichwai (Shrinathji) Workshop

Pichwai is a large devotional Hindu painted pictures, normally on cloth, which portrays Krishna. They are mainly made to hang in Hindu temples of the Pushtimarg devotional tradition, especially the Shrinathji Temple in Nathdwara, Rajasthan, built around 1672.

They are hung behind the idol of Shrinathji, a local form of Krishna and the center of Pushtimarg worship, to depict his Leelas. The purpose of Pichhwais, other than an artistic appeal, is to narrate tales of Krishna to the illiterate. Temples have sets with different images, which are changed according to the calendar of festivals celebrating the deity.
