Warli painting  –  Tulsi Vivah or Tulsi wedding

Hi there,

This is my new addition to warli painting gallery.

This painting is of a occasion of “Tulsi Vivaha” (Tulsi wedding ) in a warli style on a black handmade paper using white acrylic colour.

Tulsi Vivaha is the ceremonial marriage of the Tulsi plant (holy basil) to the Hindu god  Vishnu or his avatar Krishna. This ceremony is performed  on “Uththan dwadashi” or twelth lunar day of the hindu month Kartika.The Tulsi wedding signifies the end of the monsoon and the beginning of the Hindu wedding season.It is ususally performed in the evening.

I wanted to post this at the time of Tulsi Vivah last week but couldn’t.

This is a picture of Tulsi wedding at my home.Tulsi plant is dnchesecorated with garlands and small gooseberry( Amla) branches are kept in the tulsi pot.
