The art of Madhubani is mythology. The paintings are legends to which the folk turn to pray in the daily ritual. According to their belief, in the cosmos, every animate and inanimate form is to be worshipped.

Together with the chief gods of the Hindu pantheon, the lesser deities and the planets are also to be worshipped. Surya illuminates the earth; infuses energy into all creatures being the leader and king in heaven. He is prayed to for deliverance from sin and to conduct the souls of the departed to the abode of the righteous. Here, he appears in his symbolic form with human features in a circular pattern with rays emanating from all sides. Coming towards the sun is his son, Shani, born of Surya and Chaya. Surya's wife Suvarna found his heat and brightness too much too bear and so left a replacement who looked exactly like her. She was called Chaya who bore Shani. Shani is not considered ominous and anyone born under the said planet is said to undergo many problems in life. The Maithilas worship Shani and keep him pleased. In art he is represented as a black and ugly man, holding a lasso in one hand.

This painting attracts attention due to its unusual theme and colour scheme.

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.
