Born to establish the religion of love, Krishna was the son of Devaki and Vasudeva. A vast mass of legend and fable has been gathered around Krishna. The divine character of Krishna finds mention in the Mahabharata, Bhagwata Purana and the Harivamsa.

The pata-chitra, folk art of Orissa, has found mass appeal and appreciation. This painting narrates the story of the life of Krishna, from his earliest days, in minute details – his birth, the mischevious pranks of the child, the follies of the boy, the amours of the youth; these incidents being the subjects of boundless wonder and delight. But that is not all, this painting also deals with demons in various forms, whom Krishna destroyed for them to find salvation at his hands.

The theme is not the only interesting element of this painting; the compositional division to narrate each incident is more so. The central panel is rectangular further divided into a square in the middle, flanked by two lotuses. Inside in the centre square consists of Radha, Krishna and the gopis; the other avatars of Vishnu also find place in this square. The core of the lotus depicts important incidents of Krishna's life and the petals the rasa dance of Krishna.

The fact that the incidents are not arranged in a chronological order, does in no way depreciate the beauty of this marvelous work of art.

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.
