What is Pichwai Art?
They are paintings from rajasthan's temples...Pichhwai  are large devotional Hindu painted pictures, normally on cloth, which portray Krishna. They are mainly made to hang in Hindu temples of the Pushtimarg devotional tradition, especially the Shrinathji Temple in Nathdwara, Rajasthan, built around 1672. They are hung behind the idol of Shrinathji, a local form of Krishna and the centre of Pushtimarg worship, to depict his leelas. Aurangabad was another area associated with them.The purpose of Pichhwais, other than artistic appeal, is to narrate tales of Krishna to the illiterate.
