Pauranic myths and tales have been part of our culture for long. They make for interesting stories, with a moral to deduce.

The story of sage Vishwamitra and Maneka has found favour with many an artist since it provides scope to depict austerity and sensuality at the same time. Maneka, an apsara or a celestial dancer, was sent to the earth to disrupt the austere meditation of the sage Vishwamitra. The canvas is dominated by the tall, nude figure of the nymph in profile. She is in the process of dressing when she sees Vishwamitra emerge from behind the trees. Her posture or expression shows no sign of embarrassment or hesitancy as if she had precisely planned the timing. After all, it was her mission to seduce the sage and divert him from severe meditation. If there is suppressed sensuality in the curves of the form, there is the beauty of nature in the background to complement.

The artist has captured the shades of the sky at dawn, the still waters of the river etc. as well as the beauty of the female form.

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.
