Episodes from the Mahabharata are frequently depicted in all forms of art and Orissa pata-chitra is no exception. The sermon that Lord Krishna delivered to Arjuna in the battlefield of Kurukshetra is one such episode.

The unique element of this painting is that the protagonists of the narrative are placed in the extreme left corner. Lord Krishna, with his hand raised in a blessing gesture, stands in a frontal pose while Arjuna can be seen seated in profile, kneeling, hands held in anjali mudra. The central space of the painting is occupied by the grandiose of their chariot driven by four white steeds. The horses are richly caparisoned in silk saddles and ornaments. The main chariot has an elaborate canopy with the arches flanked by elephant heads with raised trunks, parrots and peacocks. Prominently placed atop the chariot is the image of Hanuman, the deity they look up to for protection.

As Krishna sermonises Arjuna, there is stillness around. All there is to movement is the shell-shaped clouds that fill up the entire background. The foreground consists of the story ground.

The painting displays an abashed use of colour. Too many colours have disturbed the aesthetic element but is saved by the firm and strong line.

The level of customer service provided by you was amazing ! No other Indian Web services, except very few, are giving customers this kind of detailed attention. Thanks Exotic India, I got the book yesterday.

The Nataraja statue arrived fully intact and is absolutely beautiful. I appreciate the great care that was taken in securely wrapping it. I am very satisfied. I have used a few other websites for Indian goods in the past but this experience was so smooth and the shipping so quick that I will be using Exotic India as my first choice and option in the future.
