Tradition traces the origin of pata paintings at Puri to the 11th Century when the Jagannath cult was established. If it is a world and myths and gods, it is also a world of folk imagination.

A ceremonial procession is in progress with two grand palanquins carrying the married couple. In most Indian traditions, marriage involves several ceremonies and festivities, at the end of which the bridegroom takes the bride home, loaded with gifts. This panel shows a part of the above festivities. Four men each carry the palanquins, with those playing the music leading it. Musical instruments like the drum and trumpet are accompanied by the sound of the conch, heralding auspices. Behind the palanquin of the bride are a couple of men carrying the gifts received. All in all, it is a joyous picture depicting a rite of passage.

Special characteristics of this painting are the clear cut and bold linear designs and its colour presentation. The trees in the background are painted slender and willowy and each leaf and flower is separately drawn. The sporadic clouds are painted blue with bold white outlining.

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.
