paintings selling shop in mattancherry town of kerala cochin,photograph of oil and ordinary paintings in display infront of shopJew town, Mattancherry, Cochin2...you saw that in the photo??

And here came something different..A shop entirely for paintings.. You have to watch them in real..They are amazing piece of art... Certainly the place has a tradition in the art of painting..You can see great oil and vegetable pigment paintings in the Dutch Palace Museum near to this Jew Street..

The greatest peculiarity of the museum is that the museum (late dutch palace) walls has a special type of painting called Mural Art.The painting done by the Cochin Rajah on the palace walls..The speciality of that painting is the entire colours used were made from vegetables egg yolks etc.. The entire Subject for the painting is taken from Hindu Holy Books like Ramayana, Mahabharatha and Bhagavatgeetha..

You have to see the paintings done by the painters of that time in the museum apart from the Mural art by Rajah... The paintings of pictures of Rajahs of cochin are stunning and you will feel those people standing alive before you in the museum...

You have to watch my previous post on dutch palace to see some photos inside the Dutch Palace museum. Although photography was strictly prohibited inside the museum i managed to get a few for you..
