Vibrant Shringar Of The Devi Saraswati

Vibrant Shringar Of The Devi Saraswati

This superb portrayal of the Devi Saraswati is replete with all that makes folk paintings of the type so coveted. Madhubani paintings have evolved in Mithila of Bihar as interior decorations for the mud homes of the region. They are characterised by rudimentary lines, a limited but definitive colour palette that is derived from natural vegetable pigments, and themes that betray the spiritual-devotional inclinations of the simple folks who make this art. This painting is a fine example of Madhubani: the minimalistic silhouette of the Devi, the vivid colours permeating those lines, and the sacredness of the Devi Herself. With Her four hands She plays on the veena, carries a pothi, and counts the beads on a rosary. She is the deity that presides over wealth and resources, prerequisites to preservation that is in turn presided over by Her husband, the Lord Brahma.

This painting is bound to fill your space with an abundance of colour. The Devi is seated in lalitasana, Her form bedecked in brightly coloured silks and shringar, the most notable of which is the thick orange garland that cascades from the neck all the way down to the floor. Her gold kundalas and nath (nosering) and crown against the jet black tresses about Her shoulders and waist, are huge and go with the ultra-feminine makeup on Her divine countenance. Not one but two peacocks are on either side of Her. While She is shown seated on a bed of colourful flowers, the foreground is dominated by a freshly blooming lotus. Note the vibrant red background that hints at something of a court of the Devi in question.

Tina, USA
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.
