On Sunday, 21st July 2019, Sawani Shetye will give insight into Kaavi art’s technique, iconography scheme and social understanding, as part of the Museum of Goa’s MOG SUNDAYS series. Kaavi, an art form practised in Goa and the coastal areas of the neighbouring states of Maharashtra and Karnataka, derives its name from the word ‘Kaav’, which refers to the Geru, a brownish-red pigment or hematite.

To make this form of art, colour made of fine powder of Kaav is mixed with a water-based adhesive and painted over lime plaster. Figures are later etched on this surface with the help of a pointed metallic reed. This style of art can be seen in Goa, and Konkani temples, churches and houses of Karnataka and Maharashtra.
