Seasons Greetings

The annual post on Christmas themed art from India.

nasrani margamkali

First up the Margam Kali from Kerala.  The dance is not Christmas specific though many schools do seem to hold competitions including the dance around December.

The costume is the traditional chattayum mundu (refers to the shirt/top and sarong like wrap).

Artwork from here.

Blue-Madonna frank wesley

Second Frank Wesley’s painting of the Blue Madonna.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
