Among the traditional folk art tradition, pata-chitras enjoy a special status. It originated as a temple art and went on to amalgamate genre themes. The pata-chitra are also often based on different episodes of the Ramayana, Mahabharata, Puranas and Kavyas.

What strikes instantly about this painting is the compartmentalization done with precision. The epicenter of the painting is Rama and Sita enthroned with the ever faithful Hanuman seated at their feet. Gods demi-gods and humans pay their respect to them. The rectangular section has a row of elephants, acknowledging the purana-kalasha, at the lower end.

Circles, squares and other geometric shapes form multiple borders around the main theme. They depict events prior to Rama's birth down to his exile and further incidents that led to the battle and defeat of Ravana. It is noteworthy that the artist bestows an important place to Hanuman and includes him in most events.

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.
