The people of Madhubani are religious in nature. Vishnu, Shiva and the Devi are most commonly worshipped and thus portrayed in art.

Using pure pigments and simple themes, they create stories in picture. This painting narrates an interesting episode concerning the great asura Raktabija, who had a boon that whenever a drop of blood fell from his body on the ground, an army of asuras would arise. Devi, in her form as Chamunda, went on drinking Raktabija's blood without letting a single drop fall on the ground.

Chamunda, is seen here in her horrendous form with a garland of skulls and a girdle of severed limbs. She looks furious as she chops and kills with abandon. The right side of the canvas is blood red, containing an army of asuras, which the Devi sucks in. The goddess' hair forms the background behind her, leaving little space for the floral fillings that abound all empty spaces in a Madhubani painting.

Testimonials

I ordered Padmapani Statue. I have received my statue. The delivering process was very fast and the statue looks so beautiful. Thank you exoticindia, Mr. Vipin (customer care). I am very satisfied.
Hartono, Indonesia
Very easy to buy, great site! Thanks
Ilda, Brazil
Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.

Another three books arrived during the last weeks, all of them diligently packed. Excellent reading for the the quieter days at the end of the year. Greetings to Vipin K. and his team.

Your products are uncommon yet have advanced my knowledge and devotion to Sanatana Dharma. Also, they are reasonably priced and ship quickly. Thank you for all you do.

Thank you kindly for the Cobra Ganesha from Mahabalipuram. The sculpture is exquisite quality and the service is excellent. I would not hesitate to order again or refer people to your business. Thanks again.

The variety, the quality and the very helpful price range of your huge stock means that every year I find a few new statues to add to our meditation room--and I always pick up a few new books and cds whenever I visit! keep up the good work!
