Pata-chitra, such as this, means a scroll painting on canvas. They originate from Puri in Orissa and mainly have the icons of Sri Jagannath, Balathadra and Subhadra. However, there are other categories of remarkable paintings.

This pata-chitra depicts elephants in different colours, moods and postures. The elephant in Indian ethos occupies a significant place. They are associated with clouds and life giving rain. Indra rides an elephant and Lakshmi, the goddess of good luck, is often shown being bathed by elephants.

The brown, black and grey elephants are interspersed with a powder blue ones which is an uncommon colour. Running, strolling, sitting, lying - elephants are shown in these postures and more. They are all adorned with ornaments and rich cloth covering their back. The royal animal looks royal! The painting exudes a feeling of joy and happiness. Each elephant, individually, has that expression as much as their movements have the carefree quality rarely associated with the pachyderm who is considered bulky, wise and grim as an animal.

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.
