Folk art is motivated by utilitarian and ritualistic features and sometimes by individual creative and recreational impulses. Mainly dominated and shaped by the religious motif, the relation between this art and religion is a universal feature. The central inspiration of Mithila paintings. revolves around popular religious themes.

This painting illustrates a theme from the Bhagvad Purana. Krishna is shown subduing and dancing on the hoods of the Sheshanaga, the serpent in the Yamuna river. He has an ornate halo around his head and holds his flute in one hand and the tail of the serpent in the other. 'Matsyakanyas,' emerging from the mouth of the fishes, stand facing Krishna with folded hands. They all wear a snake hood tiara. Full bloomed lotus flowers float in the waters.

The figures are related to each other by color and linear rhythms and this unifying element makes this painting lively instead of frail and feeble. Few colors are used here but whatever color it is, it has always the same tone and all the colors have vivid brilliance. The special charm of this painting lies in the total absence of self-consciousness and in the simplicity of its vision.

The rural art of Madhubani is unique for here coalesce a comprehension and knowledge of Sanskrit learning and culture, iconography, ritual and magic and the distortion and vitality inherent in the rural perception of the visual arts.

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.
