Kanakavalli's Motif Spotlight series is a celebration of the classic forms that embellish the kanjivaram. This edition focuses on the deer, Kanakavalli's signature logo and a rare but beautiful motif on the silken drape.
The golden deer is described in the beloved epic Ramayana, and is symbolic of innocence and non-violence. The deer is also connected with the iconography of Lord Siva and is the vehicle of Vayu, the god of wind. The graceful animal, rooted in culture and tradition, comes to life on the kanjivaram, woven on the body, border or pallu in fine zari and silken yarn.
Lithe and poised, the deer motif evokes a sense of delicacy and beauty. Explore a selection of kanjivarams showcasing the maan motif right here.
