This is a flamboyant re-creation of Indian mythological theme in a Western manner. The sensibility of the painter, as expressed in the selection of the theme and its treatment, is unmistakably Indian. This painting contains the Indian synthesis, a respect for the techniques and traditions of the west together with a true admiration for all that is genuinely and basically indigenous.

This tall and lissome Durga rides her mount, the tiger. She resembles in no way the Durga image that we are accustomed to seeing. Here, the painter builds a creative bridge between the old and the new. Only the iconic image has been experimented with, the message and implication remains the same. She wears a metal bustier and carries attributes associated with the goddess. She wears a tiara, together with a headdress that extends a long length. People, recipients of her grace and benevolence, are represented by a couple of tribals standing on lower hills. They are dressed in attire akin to that of the north-eastern states. The hands of both the man and the woman, are on the hilt of the swords, ready to draw them out and attack if need be. Durga, standing overhead is symbolic of the shadow of protection and benevolence of the great goddess. Durga is known to have a dual characteristic – a fierce nature and a gentle one. The background is reflective of the same. One side of the background has the light of the rising sun and the other is dark and stormy.

This magnificent work is tactile and enigmatic as only textured oils can be when the painting is both figurative and symbolic.

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.
