Pata-Chitra are a result of folk imagination in the spiritual world of gods. Tradition traces their origin at Puri to the 11th century when the Jagannath cult was established.

The pictures of the divine 'Triad' are popularly known as 'Sri Khetra Pati', the triad being Sri Jagannath, Balabhadra and Subhadra. In a unique representation, which is dictated by popular trends, the three are depicted as one integrated with the other. On an angular pedestal, within the flames of sacred fire, the black totem-like figure of Jagannath sits cross-legged with Subhadra holding a long stemmed lotus placed in his lap. In sharp contrast, the white figure of Balabhadra, emerges from behind Jagannath, holding a plough in one hand, beside other attributes. Jagannath holds all the attributes of Vishnu, whose incarnation he is. On either side of the image is Brahma Ji and a human paying obeisance to the divinity.

If there is piety in the image there is beauty in the architecture around it - the partially visible pillars, the arch, the layered canopy, all containing the beauty of colour and pattern. The color scheme itself is extremely vivid and bright, with the resplendent flame rising beautifully against the rich blue ground.

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.
