This composition represents the Jagannatha trio in a special ceremonial costume that includes arms and legs fitted to the icons of Jagannatha and his brother. Three different sets of ceremonial limbs are kept in readiness in the temple, to be used as props during special festivals. One set is made of wood and covered with gold, another of pith (an extremely light and easily carved reed), and a third set-black in color- is made of cane and wood.

Featured in this painting are the gold-plated arms and legs, as part of the king's costume (Raja-vesha), which is employed on three different full moon days, and also on Dusshera day. Jagannath Ji holds a wheel and a conch shell, while Balarama holds a mace and a plow, attributes typically connected with the two deities. The gold limbs are also used as part of another costume called the gold dress (swarna vesha), which the gods wear as they are taken back to the main temple after the chariot festival.

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.
