Kalamkari relates exclusively to the category of cotton fabric, which are patterned through the medium of dye rather than the loom. Andhra Pradesh is known for its workmanship in the process of Kalamkari.

The brilliant colors are eschewed in favour of a strong motif and pattern. A widespread opinion is that the beauty of a peacock lies in the bright colors, but the artist proves it otherwise. The peacock, does not look at its surroundings; its so full of itself, it looks only at self-pride writ large on the face and the manner it struts. The body of the bird is patterned with the wings gracefully falling. The artist has given the peacock a stylistically shaped tail, which looks as beautiful, if not better than a real one.

The artist has not placed the bird in the centre. Though most of the space is occupied by it, the flowering plant on the right gets its share of prominence. The burnt sienna colour in the background lifts the peacock into prominence. This Description by Renu Rana.

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.
