Hindu life and belief is rooted in mythology of gods and goddesses. Their adventures in their myriad forms are the source of Hindu philosophy, religious practices and social behaviour.

Stories from the Ramayana are an integral part of the aural folklore, though time and again art tries to visually narrate them. This painting depicts an episode during the exile of Rama, Sita and Lakshmana. While they were wandering in the forest, they incurred the wrath of the demons. Surupnakha, seen here with a castrated nose, was a giantess who first tried to entice Rama, who resisted her advances, saying that he was married. She then leaned towards Lakshmana, wanting to marry him. But Lakshmana also spurned her. Surupnakha then attacked Sita but Lakshmana in turn attacked the giantess, cutting off her nose. Surupnakha sought vengeance through her elder brother Ravana and induced him to carry off Sita to Lanka.

The unique aspect of this painting is that the artist has used different body colours for different people. He has used blue for Rama's body signifying his role as an avatar of Vishnu; the fair Sita and Lakshmana belonging to the mortal world; the dark and ugly Surupnakha symbolizes the evil side of demons and giants.

The lush green and serene background stands witness to the gruesome event.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
