The Majesty Of Lord Pashupatinath

The Majesty Of Lord Pashupatinath

Lord Pashupatinath is a specific manifestation of the multi-roopi Lord Shiva. Housed in an ancient temple of Kathmandu valley, it is a confluence of all five aspects of Him: Lord Sadyojata, Lord Vamadeva, Lord Tatpurusha, Lord Aghora, and Lord Ishana. Indeed, the tall and stately sculpture that you see on this page captures the majesty of Lord Pashupatinath. Almost imposing in its splendour, such a composition comes not only from skill but also from the highest order of shraddha.


Note the pedestal He is standing on. An integral aspect of Indian iconography, the same is a double-tiered one with perfectly symmetrical lotus petals carved on each. It adds to the stature of the Lord as much as the crown that towers on His head. Right beneath the rim of the crown is a line of ringlets and a pair of beauteous eyes, in them an expression of divine omniscience. From the vine-like structures that flank that face to the shringar that graces the torso and limbs of the Lord, each aspect of this sculpture is in keeping with the iconography of the South.


The fine proportions of Lord Pashupatinath’s chaturbhujadhari (four-armed) form are a hallmark of the sculptor’s skill. Zoom in on the lifelike musculature of the limbs and the torso and the ratio that defines them. His legs are overlain with an richly embellished ornate dhoti, sashes descending from either side of His hips on the polished surface of the pedestal.

Sterling Bracelet with Cabochon Moonstone

Sterling Bracelet with Cabochon Moonstone

The moonstone has a highly characteristic sheen. It is a milky, opalescent variety of feldspar with all the lustre of polished pearls. More precisely, it is their adularescence, an inimitable lustre, that makes moonstones so desirable. The series of finely polished moonstones that you see on this page has been strung together in a network of sterling silver loops. It is sure to look great on the wrist of an elegant fashionista, be it at a casual luncheon in the day or a glamorous do in the evening.

Moonstones are said to have a calming effect on the wearer. For those prone to temper and anxiety, the moonstone has a healing power over the psyche. The silver of the wristlet and the matte silver of the gems embedded thereon, make for a colour palette that would go with a wide variety of outfits. Use this to accessorise an elegant solid-coloured saree or western ensemble in neutral tones.

Memory Of A Woman

Memory Of A Woman

A young woman emerges in the dreams of her lover. She is doubled up within the folds of a white silk sheet, which she holds in place with a single hand. Her wheatish, lifelike hand clutches at the sheet over the creases that betray her restlessness. Her face is contorted with misery, a misery that has driven her to the brink of insanity.


Over the white of the fabric spreads the length of her wavy black hair, its mass and colour painted with considerable skill. Note the detail of her wide-set brow and the aquiline nose of her face, which convey that she is a handsome woman. The lines on her upper cheeks and the whites of her eyes are as if caught amidst a bout of convulsive sobbing.


Perhaps the lover knows well how she had suffered in his absence. She had written expressive letters where she described in great detail the travails of going through life without him next to herself. Those letters, old and aged and yellowed, are lying in his drawer, and it is from those musty handwritten papers that the memory of her rises to haunt him.

Bandhani Gharchola Dupatta from Gujarat with Zari-Woven Checks

Bandhani Gharchola Dupatta from Gujarat with Zari-Woven Checks

Gharchola garments are a unique feature of life in the Northwest. They are the most understated part of the bridal trousseau, the term having traditionally been reserved for the clothing meant to be worn by the bride around her new home. The sarees and dupattas that come under this category are typically brightly coloured and embroidered with sequins and mirrors, making for sumptuous works of silk. The one you see on this page is one such gharchola dupatta.

It is made from pure silk and dyed in the bandhani style that is a rage with the women of the region. It comes in two youthful colours, cobalt blue and vermillion orange Both these colours do justice to the zari-edged chequers that define the field. Such a dupatta is best teamed with a basic, solid-coloured suit in order to bring out its brilliance. This is a great, statement-making number to be worn to casual parties in the day and evening alike.

The bilvapatra is trifoliate which symbolizes the trinity i.e. Lords Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva. It is also said to represent the trinetra of lord Shiva.

Damru symbolizes the Universe which is always expanding and collapsing.

Lord Shiva is also called Mahadeva or the Great God,( G for generator, O for operator and D for Destroyer ). In Hindu temples, an embodiment of Shiva is often placed prominently at the altar in a form or avatar known as the lingam. Due to the drinking of Halahala poison by Lord Shiva, water/milk /other sacred liquid is poured on the Shivalinga as a symbol to calm and relieve His body. Show your wavering devotion to Lord Shiva by keeping this adorable, handy shivalinga abhishek set in your worship room.

Babur - Founder of the Mughal Dynasty

Babur - Founder of the Mughal Dynasty

Babur was the founder of the Mughal Empire and first Emperor of the Mughal dynasty in the Indian subcontinent. He was a descendant of both Timur and Genghis Khan through his father and mother, respectively. In this painting, Kailash Raj has beautifully captured Babar's aging figure as a deep mink complexioned man with a Greek nose and drooping almond eyes enhanced by his black and white hued duck tail beard and straight eyebrows as his fine ears protrude through his bandhej yellow and green spiral turban which is beautified with two white and grey jutting feathers.

He is appareled in a dusty azure blue jama tightened by a gold studded floral belt as he tops it up with his sandstone orange choga bordered with snowy white outlines. His sharp sword is sheathed in a leather brown gilded scabbard as a golden chain hangs down from it to his waist belt. He holds an embroidered religious book in his left hand whilst a white cotton handkerchief in his left.

His background is made splendidly aesthetic by painting it in a hue of light jade and Carolina blue colors, contrasting it with pink lupines and white delphiniums that beautify the painting with the accompanying busy blue flowers which take the sideline. It is enclosed in a thick bronze glittered framework that makes it an eye-catching beauty as it attracts the spectators with its remarkable artistic wonders.

Midi-Skirt with Sequins

Midi-Skirt with Sequins

Hunting down the perfect mid-leg skirt can be quite the task. For those of us who are on the lookout for a not-so-formal number, the skirt you see on this page would be just the pick. The fabric makes for a great fit and there are two different colours, black and white, for you to choose from. The USP of this skirt lies in the volumes of pink and scarlet pleats interspersed with the base black or white, making for a youthfully flirtatious hemline.

Note the columns of sequins that run down the length of the skirt and define the gorgeously coloured detailing. These lustrous silver-coloured bits the size of a thumbnail are a staple of women’s fashion in Northwestern India. A thin strip of shimmering silver lace lines the hemline of the skirt, which complements the sequins sewn on to the body of the skirt. Team this skirt with a glamorous Indian choli to make the most of it.

The Pensive Lord Chenrezig

The Pensive Lord Chenrezig

The Tibetan deity Chenrezig is the most untiring of the Bodhisattvas. With His thousand arms and thousand heads, He strives until space and time remains to free those of us in ihaloka (current realm of existence) of existential perpetuation and suffering. In this superb sculpture of the Lord Chenrezig, He is depicted in a rudimentary bhadrasana. The plenitude of limb and head is invisible to us mandadhikaris (low-rung devotees).

Note the angulature of His long torso and the suppleness of His limbs: with such a lifelike stance, the form of the Lord irreversibly draws in the devotee. The typical robe of Buddhist deities bares one shoulder and features dense embroidery from the navel downwards. The finest adornments grace His beauteous person - necklaces resting on the broad decolletage, bracelets down those slender arms, and karna-kundalas that graze the zenith of His clavicles.

Zoom in on the handsome face of the Lord Chenrezig. The brow like the wings of a soaring albatross plunges into a sharp nose and a perfectly relaxed, symmetrical mouth. His crowned head drops gently forward, those half-shut eyes indicative of the deepest introspective contemplation.
