Artist's Description

Sahyadri is a mountain range that runs parallel to the western coast of India. Also called as the Great Escarpment of India. Starting at the border of Gujarat and Maharashtra runs approximately 1,600 km through the states of Maharashtra, Goa, Karnataka, Kerala and Tamil Nadu ending at Kanyakumari, at the southern tip of India.

This painting depicts the Sahyadri range in Maharashtra which is a home to many hill stations like Matheran, Lonavala-Khandala, Mahabaleshwar, Panchgani and Amboli Ghat. Saw these two sun birds sitting on a tree. A very small bird with a semi-circle bill. Yellow below the body and totally black on top with a few shiny feathers of blue, it flew like a humming bird. There are about 132 species of sun bird. In the Sahyadri you will find 508 species of birds. The flower shown in orange was also there on a tree only with flowers and no leaves. These flowers were also in red. The pink flowers are normally found in the southern parts of this range. Do not know its name. It seems there are many birds and flowers which are not yet found and not named. There are about 7,402 species of flowering plants. There are many waterfalls and rivers flowing through it. During the monsoon the gushing waterfalls are a sight to see. These are rocks are basically basalt.

It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is one of the eight “hottest hotspots” of biological diversity in the world.

The range is known as Sahyadri in Maharashtra and Karnataka while Sahya Parvatam in Kerala, Nilagiri malai in Tamilnadu, Cardamom Hills and Nilgiri Hills are a part of this range in the south.

A Palette knife painting in acrylic of 20″ × 25″.
