Art Mini Print: This Bengalese style artwork of a Cat with a Prawn was produced for Pilgrims to the Kalighat temple of Calcutta, and was steeped in local tradition and religious themes. This style of art normally portrayed a complete inversion of the social order where as women were painted as being the leaders and men as the lowly workers. The art was drawn mainly with pen and ink and was awash with curves and very little perspective. There is something of innocence and beauty harboured in this print as the cat sits patiently with a large prawn in it's mouth as if it were awaiting further instructions. A really unique piece which will add a brilliant sense of culture into your home.
