The folk paintings of Orissa have a tradition of great antiquity. The paintings depict major gods in the Hindu pantheon, familiar episodes in the Radha Krishna legend and Sri Jagannath.

Keeping folk-lore as their major inspiration, the artist here describes an episode from Siva Purana. Ascetic Shiva travels the length and breadth of Kailash with his consort Parvati on his vehicle, Nandi, the bull. Unlike its natural counterparts, it is hardly the virile beast that wanders across pastures ready to gore to death a rival with his mighty horns. Shiva's bull is tame and serves as his vehicle (vahana). An analysis of the deities with associated animals suggest a reflection or reinforcement of some of the qualities perceived in the deity. Shiva's bull has strong connections with sexual energies or man's wild, uncontrollable nature.

Shiva sits across the bull holding the trident, the damaru and a kamandalu. With one hand, he holds Parvati securely. He wears a crown and his knotted hair rises above displaying the crescent moon. A snake forms a garland around his neck. Parvati too sits astride the bull, lovingly looking back at her husband and holding an umbrella above his head. Her glance and gesture speak of the love and devotion she has for her ascetic husband.

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.
