"Man Dancing With His Horse" ©SandhyaManne, Oils on Canvas, 24 X 18 Inches

"An important part of the temple festival entertainments, dancers dancing along the village streets with the temple Deity’s chariot procession."

"Man Dancing With His Horse"  is part of my “Date with the Dolls” series of oil paintings capturing the simple beauty of Tanjavour dancing dolls and bobbleheads. Growing up in Madurai and Chennai I remember seeing these heavy terracotta dolls neatly tucked in the showcases of the living rooms in almost every house. But every year they would be brought out and displayed as part of the Kolu during the Navarathri celebrations… A lot has changed since then for the terracotta dolls are now mostly made with paper mache…and many other kinds of dancing dolls have been added for variety. Through this series I attempt to recreate those nostalgic emotions in the viewer.
