Religious pictures showing Brahmanical paintings are offered to pilgrims at the entrance of temples at Puri. These traditional paintings have their own depictions of features and figures and that itself distinguishes them from the rest.

This is an unusual painting depicting Vishnu and Shiva together with their spouses and vehicles. What is most striking about the painting is also the unison of the two vahanas – the elephant and the bull. The artist has given them two separate bodies but a common head with the features of two animals. Vishnu and Shiva have four arms each. Vishnu holds a conch and a discus in two hands and Shiva holds his trident and the drum in his hands. Lakshmi and Parvati hold a lotus each in their hands. They look similar in features and attire. Talking of attire, Vishnu is dressed in a royal manner with a crown and jewellery whereas Shiva is in a tiger skin tied around the waist with a cobra for a diadem. Behind Vishnu and Lakshmi stands Garuda, semi-human and semi-bird, swift as the wind. Since Durga is considered a form of Parvati, her vehicle, the lion here stands in obeisance behind Shiva and Parvati.

The painting is in typical folk style. The twin border around the painting reflects a similar, simple style. The colours here take a back seat to line and other iconographical details.

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.
