Nature & Natural: The Aristocratic Art of Kangra &the Himalayan Biodiversity
The aristocratic art of Kangra is an integral part of Indian heritage, art and culture. This pictorial art of Kangra, named after Kangra, Himachal Pradesh, is one of the most refined art forms of India. This exquisite miniature art form strongly depicts greenery, naturalism and the rich biodiversity of Himachal Pradesh.
The paintings also depict the feminine charm in a very graceful manner articulately portraying refined, tender emotions of Indian women. However, this iconic Indian art is at the verge of extinction today and there is an urgent need to promote it vigorously to nourish the cultural heritage of the land.
On the other hand, the Himalayan biodiversity is the significant geographical feature of India and is considered a life-support system for much of Asia and of significance to the world, impacting millions of lives. As is now well recognised, there are ecological imbalances in the Himalayan region due to the various human interferences. The Himalayas is highly sensitive to global warming and long-term conservation and sustainable development is the call of the day.
We are proud to partner with the Kangra Arts Promotion Society, Himachal Pradesh, India to delve deeper in to the subject in a holistic manner in the direction of sustainable development.
Nature & Natural: The Aristocratic Art of Kangra & the Himalayan Biodiversity, is an Aei4eiA initiative.
