This art was first of all initiated by my forefathers in SHAHPURA 311404 Rajasthan Since 1629 It is to be particularly borne in mind that the entire credit of initiating phad painting goes exclusively to Joshi family of Shahpura which is settled at SHAHPURA 311404 Rajasthan and nowhere else. This historical background of the art is traced to 600 years back related to Joshi Family Shahpura. PHAD The ancient tradition of scroll painting survives in Rajasthan as Phad. A Phad is a long rectangular cloth painting that tells of the adventures and travails of Pabuji, a local hero or other epic heroes. Ritual With the painting rolled up on two shafts of bamboo, the bhopa travels from village to village with the intent of singing the liturgical epic of the life and death of the hero god. This performance is the principal ritual of the cult of Pabuji (and Devnarayan).
