Indian art has always been conceptually related to religious beliefs. The epics of Ramayana and Mahabharata have inspired numerous depictions in various styles, each unique in its own way.

Depicting an episode from the Ramayan, the artist has used the linear and chromatic elements to their best use. Ram and Ravana, the king of Lanka were engaged in a conflict as the latter had abducted Rama's wife Sita. Rama's army of monkeys and boars, under Hanuman's supervision, decided to build a bridge from the mainland to the island. A monumental task completed not only by the brigade's effort but their devotion towards Rama. In this painting, each one carries a boulder with Rama's name inscribed on it. Rama and Lakshman are shown standing in a corner, over awed by their army's effort and enthusiasm.

Strong line seems to be the artists forte; the colours within are juxtaposed well, though, chromatically, they are sharply conflicting. The fury of the sea is shown in black while the rest of the background is in sobre beige.

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.
