It is well known that Hanuman was born of divine parents. His father was Vayu, the wind god and his mother was Anjani, an apsara, who had been transformed into a monkey under the spell of a curse.

In this painting, we see Hanuman with five heads and twice as many arms. He is painted of golden complexion, sitting in padmasana on a lotus seat. The face is depicted as that of a monkey's, but his limbs & torso are conventionally correct. The other four heads are those of Varaha, Garuda, Ashva and Simha. If the nine hands of Panchmukha Hanuman hold various attributes, the normal right hand is held in a preaching mode. This image is placed in a niche having broad based pillars and multi layered dome.

As in any other folk art, it is not 'art for art's sake' but 'art for the sake of God'. The colors, flatly applied, are appealing. The shapes and lines do not smoothly extend into the other – the line has sharpness that belies harmony. The image and the surroundings have a confluence of colors, cool and warm. The sky above has a tranquilizing blue with curling clouds. The borders again have crowded pattern, leaving little empty spaces.

I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.

Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
