The people of Mithila are deeply religious. The influence of goddess Kali has been quite predominant in the tradition of Tantra which has greatly influenced their character and these traditions have found adequate expression in the painting of the Maithilas.

The Mahavidya goddesses are tantric deities who represent the ten path of transcendental knowledge. On the left side of the painting is the goddess herself, one of the most intoxicating personifications of primal energy in the cosmic drama. Next to her is Chinnamasta, representing Devi in her destructive and creative aspect. As Chinnamasta, 'the Decapitated', Kali is intoxicated with divine energy. She is flanked by her two yoginis, Dakshi and Varnini and as she feeds upon her own blood, she drenches two other of her aspects, positive and negative. They symbolize the illusion of duality. The couple under her feet, Rati and Kama, personify the primordial desire which gives rise to all creation. The goddess mocks, being herself the unique force of everything.

Beneath their feet are lotus flowers which represents the perfection of beauty and symmetry. The vertical painting, at the lower end has two yantras of the goddesses. The classical imagery of the two icons is transformed into a geometrical energy pattern called the yantra.

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.
