The traditions of all the arts in South India had their roots in temple rituals. The fine craftsmen of this 'pen and brush' technique painted the narratives of religious legends. The anonymity of the painters arises from the fact that they are family-communities, rather than individuals, working together in the closely-knit collaboration in the homestead.

This image of the transcendent Buddha is centrally placed, the scenic setting is that of the deer park at Sarnath. It is here that Buddha Shakyamuni gave his first sermon. He is seated in the meditation posture (in the lotus position), with his hands in the 'dhyan mudra.' His eyes are semi-closed. This picture of Buddha is a result of a study of sculptures belonging to Mathura School during the Gupta period - the main features of which were the multi-fold garment, a full sensuous lower lip and an ornate halo. From that halo commence creepers with beautiful flowers providing a resting place for two peacocks. In the foreground are two gentle looking deer.

Pictorially speaking, it is a highly balanced composition, with identical depictions on both sides. The flora and fauna are equally divided on either sides. It is enclosed by two borders of varying width. Usually, in the process of Kalamkari , brilliant colors are given prominence, but here colors maintain the serenity of the subject. As with any of the works of art, the basis for success here is an aptitude for color and design, plus talent and skill.
