Folk art has always been influenced by Hindu mythology. The epics play a major role in shaping their religious and social role. Ramayana, with Rama, as the hero is popular as a guide to right living.

Ram is symbolic of a perfect husband and Sita of a perfect wife; Hanuman is an exemplary devotee in the service of his Lord, and the three of them together are role models for a pious life. Rama was a descendent of the Sun Clam, the Suryavanshi; hence the symbol of the sun on the throne. The modeling of the bodies and the facial features are typical of Orissa style-full bodies, face in profile and of course the ornaments have local traditional designs. A quiver of arrows can be seen behind Rama's shoulder as he holds one arrow from it. If Rama is a form of Vishnu, then as Sita, Lakshmi is his consort and thus, holds a lotus in one hand. A halo surrounds Rama's head, giving him an exclusive divine status. Holding Rama's foot with reverence is Hanuman, who has become the apotheosis of loyalty and selfless service. The mace, his attribute, lies next to him, forgotten as he sees nothing beyond Lord Rama.

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.
