Many of the myths and legends of the Warlis center around the beautiful corn goddess Kansari. These legends are mirrored in the wall paintings of the tribal homes. These paintings depict every hue of life in white only. The Warlis do not seek the help of other colors.

This is a marriage painting known as the 'chawk' drawn by savasinis only. Savasinis are women whose husbands are alive. Here, the fertility goddess Kansari is framed in a square of ornamental, geometrical designs. She has four limbs, two miniscule legs and a pin shaped head emerges from her body. The body is not rectangular, but a curious unity of two triangles. She is covered with diamond shapes and surrounded by striking symbolic motifs. The moon and the stars represent the driving force of the cosmos; a fine toothed comb and a ladder depict combing out of evil, and a way up in life respectively.

The triangle above the main rectangle is resplendent with similar geometric pattern and in the midst has the auspicious pot containing the fruits of abundant nature. This pot personifies Palghat, the Goddess of trees and plants.

The space around the chawk is filled with trees, animals, and humans engaged desultory in some activity. These describe the preparations that take place for the wedding. Ostensibly, the band players' looming shapes seem to emerge from the nether world as it were, perhaps to bless the bridal couple. Playing the band, dancing, carrying loads or just standing; whatever they are engaged in, is work, a buzz of activity, the essential expression of man.

The animals are elongated, emphasizing the stomach, and the trees are highly stylized.

This description by Renu Rana.

Tina, USA
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.
