Shivji and the Mahua flowers (the stages of intoxication)
SKU: Gond-8

Patangarh, Madhya Pradesh State
c.2011
Acrylic on canvas
(48" h. x 30" w. )

In this painting the artist depicts the stages a person goes through when he is intoxicated. Once Lord Shiva was doing penance under a tree he felt thirsty; he looked around for water and found it in a hollow of the Mahua tree. He did not realize that the water contained fermented Mahua flowers. After sipping some, he was euphoric, felt light in the head and became very talkative and chirped like a parrot. He could not resist and had some more. The more he had the louder and aggressive he got, it was as though he had taken the persona of a tiger. By this time he had lost all his senses and could not stand and started rolling on the ground like a wild boar.

Vintage Huichol yarn painting by
Cresencio Perez Robles
Nayarit, Mexico, c. 1970's
Yarn pressed into beeswax on plywood
(24" x 24")

This 24 X 24 yarn painting is by master artist Cresencio Perez Robles. Perez's work was included in book Art of the Huichol Indians, which accompanied an exhibition of Huichol Indian Art, organized by the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco. The exhibition traveled from San Francisco in 1978 to Chicago and New York. It was this show and the accompanying catalogue that first introduced Huichol yarn painting to the general public.
Cresencio Perez Robles work was also featured in the exhibit Living Traditions Mexican Popular Arts in 1992 at the University Art Museum at Albany State University of New York and the accompanying book of the same title.
This picture was made in the 1970's of wool yarn pressed onto wax spread on a wooden board. Today yarn paintings are made of acrylic yarn. On the back the artist wrote the meaning of the piece in both Huichol and in Spanish and it is signed by the artist.
