Nritya Lord Ganesha In His Heavenly Abode

Nritya Lord Ganesha In His Heavenly Abode

Origin of the folk arts of India lies in the simple endeavours of the homebound womenfolk. In their leisure, they sought to add to the aesthetics of their dwellings, which resulted in highly characteristic paintings. Even today, works of art made using traditional folk techniques have an irreplicable lucidity. The one you see on this page is an eloquent image of the nritya Ganesha. Indeed, devotion is the go-to theme of the majority of folk artists.

The Lord’s feet motion atop a platform rimmed with lotus petals, which is placed on a multi-tiered pedestal. It is His ashtabhujadhari (eight-armed) roopa, with two of which He stretches taught a serpent above His head. The lotus-rimmed aureole is a superb example of the artist’s fine attention to detail. From the haloed crown of the Lord to His roopa and shringar, each aspect of Him has been projected with great shraddha.

A traditional temple-door frames the central composition. Zoom in on the engravings of the pillar to appreciate the perfectly symmetrical, high-precision brushwork. The semblances of the clouds in the background are indicative of His heavenly abode. A pair of apsaras and His vahana, the mouse, stand at His pedestal in veneration. Hanging this painting up in your space would be like adding a piece of India to your space.

I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
Thank you for your wonderful service and amazing book selection. We are long time customers and have never been disappointed by your great store. Thank you and we will continue to shop at your store
