Painting on Marble is an Indian phenomenon wherein intricate images are drawn on these naturally beautiful stones. The stone lends a rugged look to the artifacts and the painting medium itself is as exquisite as the paintings. These paintings are of the miniature variety and make for beautiful showpieces.
Painting on marble originated in Rajasthan during the time of the Rajputs. In Rajasthan, marble is most readily available, and is therefore used for various purposes. The Rajput painters saw marbles as an ideal canvas for their paintings and quickly adopted their style according to the medium. Below are some beautiful specimen of marble paintings of Rajasthan.
