Marathi Playing Cards by Raja Ravi Verma

Raja Ravi Verma immortalised the Nauwari Sari in his paintings… but very few people know about the playing cards that were produced by his printing press at Lonavla. He has used Indian mythological characters… but in distinct Marathi dressing style!

CLUB: Dushyant, Shakuntala, Sutradhar

HEARTS: Harishchandra, Taramati, Vishwamitra

SPADE: Ram, Sita & Hanuman

DIAMOND: Nala, Damayanti & Hans
