Is very much in the Indian tradition, in which generation after generation of painters recreate images that have gone before with, no doubt, Indian minatures being used as inspiration in this respect. Tradition, an engraving is laid down on the back of the glass before water or gum arabic paints are applied.This is then fired in a kiln ensuring the paint bonds permanently with the glass. For obvious reasons, they are noted for their sheer brilliance, stunning clarity and use of rich colours. Indian glass paintings celebrate all things. In their choice of subject matter. Familiar themes being images of royalty, as here, as well as portraits of deities, mythological figures. Epic themes, icons, and both ornamental and botanical themes from nature. Other reverse glass paintings are available from lacewing-interiors. See last three images for example, and separate listings. WILL BE DISPATCHED IN POLYSTYRENE.
