The history of pata-paintings is associated with that of Lord Jagannath. The artist of Puri delights in depicting the life of Krishna, the most popular incarnation of Vishnu.

The canvas has been dramatically divided into segments to depict various incidents. The outer border narrates the tale starting from Krishna's birth. The artist Rabi Behera has relegated Krishna's childhood and the childish pranks to the background and talks of his tryst with various demons in these individual sections. The centre is occupied by a rectangle wherein Krishna stands surrounded by gopis under a semi-circular arch. This has four square sections around it. It all adds up to the way in which the artist has experimented with numerous shapes, juxtaposing them in a manner to avoid clashing. The squares show Krishna and Radha indulging in sensual activities, love evident in their mannerism. The centre also has the flamboyant Krishna seducing the gopis.

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.
