VRATHAPANI ART

This art form may seem unheard of but have a look at this amazing art and one is sure to fall in love with it.
It is  originally from Andhra Pradesh and one family is trying hard to revive this beautiful form of art
The Vrathapani art takes its inspiration from jungle scenes,images from mythology all painted on cloth using bamboo sticks and natural dyes.
