The blend of Mughal and Deccani art elements in Bundi style is unique. Fine colour combinations and manipulations of diverse elements are a hall-mark of Bundi school.

On the terrace sits a couple, engaged in amorous sport. The man makes her sip wine from a tiny cup held in his hand. She seems intoxicated already, what with her limbs flowing in all directions. Big bolsters make them comfortable. The man's armour lies abandoned close by. The 'hookah' (pipe) which he was enjoying so far, is now neglected in favour of his beloved. The flowering pots in the foreground and some fruits lying scattered have no relevance. The lone candle burning bright fades in comparison to the full moon above. The night birds attract attention towards the calm skies and the dense foliage right beneath.

Mostly, the Bundi paintings are based on the asymmetrical arrangement. In this picture, we observe that the left part contains the building portion with a domed window and a terrace, while the right shows plain space.

Thank you so much for shipping Ma Shitala.  She arrived safely today on Buddha Purnima.  We greeted Her with camphor and conch blowing, and she now is on Ma Kali’s altar.  She is very beautiful.  Thank you for packing Her so well. Jai Ma

Great site! Myriad of items across the cultural spectrum. Great search capability, too. If it's Indian, you'll probably find it here.

I was very happy to find these great Hindu texts of the ancient times. Been a fan of both Mahabhratham and Ramayanam since I was a small boy. Now the whole family can enjoy these very important cultural texts at home.
