The Mahabharata is not a mere epic; it is a romance, telling the tale of heroic men and women; a philosophy of social and ethical relations, it has for its core, the Gita.

The key player of the saga was Bhishma, who was named Devavrata, but later renamed due to his vow of renunciation for the happiness of his father. He lived the life of a hero and died like one. Here, Bhishma lies on a bed of arrows, shot by Shikhandi. His body does not touch the ground, on account of the arrows sticking out from all over his body. Thus, he lies on a bed of honour. But the narration of the episode would be incomplete if we do not mention what happened immediately after. Bhishma requested for a cushion for his head, "a cushion befitting a warrior". Arjuna took arrows from his quiver and placed them in a manner that the grandsire's head found support on their points.

The artist has painted Bhishma's body in pink colour. The aging man also has a snow white beard, which does not merge well with the rest of the painting but the artist has expressed Bhishma's age in years very well.

Testimonials

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.
