A study of Vishnu's incarnations show that some of these forms are cosmic in character, while some are obviously based on historical events.

On a horizontal panel, a niche is dedicated to each of the ten avatars of Vishnu. The first two avatars, the matsya (fish) & the Kurma (tortoise) are strongly linked to water symbolism. Mythology recounts the tale of the fish who saved the world from terrible floods and the tortoise who churned up the ocean and revealed the divine nectar. The Varaha and the Narasimha (boar and half lion-half man respectively) incarnations represent the absorption of local cult deities into the Hindu pantheon. The four next avatars, the dwarf, Rama in two incarnations and Krishna are more frequently represented in epic narrative. The final two avatars, Buddha and Kalki demonstrate Hindu absorption of later religious movements.

The artist unhesitatingly uses a plethora of colours, making sure that they do not clash. He has also given the painting multiple borders.

This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
