The Upanishads compare the body beautiful to the temple of God and dance as a medium of invoking the divine. Dance is not only the refined arts of the courtesans but is also seen as a form of worship.

This painting depicts three court dances displaying the beauty of the human form through the consonance of postures, flexions and movements of the limbs. The one in the centre wears brightly coloured clothes, possibly being the main dancer. They are not dancing in synchrony as the movements of their limbs vary. The delicacy of the figures, the transparency of the clothes and the grace of their movements is well depicted. The bodies of all three dancers are in frontal position and their faces in profile. The motion of the painting is shown by the swinging of the long pearl strings & the flowing odhinis.

The colour plate of the artist has created a sense of mystery in the painting. The glaze of the lilac, the brilliance of the orange is juxtaposed against the firm ground beneath the dancer's feet. The foreground is uncluttered; and together with a single, bold colour, uplifts other coloured elements. The wall has several niches and dark shading at the edges maintain a degree of depth between the pillars and the wall.

Hello, Just a short feedback on your new website layout: the old one was better than most of what you come across on the www, but you've managed to make it even better. I very much like the new look of the book pages and 'my gallery' pages. Thanks again for offering me a look inside the books. It's a big help for finding out if it's really what I want. Everything is perfect: the presentation of the items, your way of handling the orders, and the fast and always diligently packed parcels. Thanks to all at Exotic India, Walter

Exotic India is a fine organization to do business with. I have had the best trading experience and the very best customer service. The communication I have had with Vipin K. is of the highest quality; my questions and requests were quickly and professionally answered and fulfilled. A special thanks to the artist Kailash Raj for the beautiful art he produces; I have certainly been enriched by the way his art exemplifies the stories they tell. Many Thanks to all concerned.

An excellent website, as always. I do not even mention its content, which is beautiful beyond words, but I am merely referring to the great functionality and optimal design of your website. Links always work, the information is accurate and complete, images are very clear, including scanned content of your books. A pleasure to purchase from you.
Oreste, USA
I just wanted to extend my profound thanks to you for expediting my order. It was so well packaged and all import processes taken care of so the beautiful statue arrived in fabulous condition. It looks truly wonderful and I am so happy to have Lord Ganesh take pride of place in my home. Thank you again for your superb service. Best regards
