Varnam - Collection of Kerala Mural Art
India is one of the countries that is well known for its rich heritage, culture and exotic ancient architecture with sculptures, paintings with the richness of precious metals and color that adds vigor to the beauty of the nation.
The mural art of Kerala(India) is very much related to Dravidian art of Kalamezhuthu. This was much more developed from the customs and religious in trails. It was the art of sprinklings and filling up of attractive colors inside the outlines of drawings. The architecture and murals are also influenced by pal lavas.
The oldest rock cut cave temple of Thriunandikkara might be enriched by a lot of murals and paintings on those days, but now its sketchy outlines are existing. It might be done in 9th or 10th century AD.
In Kerala, the plentiness of paintings can be seen in the churches also. .
