Known all over the world for her medieval temples and the great artistry of her sculptures, Orissa has an invaluable art heritage. Together with Bihar and Bengal, it developed into a centre of the Radha Krishna cult.

The love of Radha and Krishna is symbolic of Krishna being the god and Radha as the soul of man. Here, the lovers dwell in the sacred Vrinda groves where nothing but the sound of his sweet flute is heard. Standing on a huge stalked lotus in an erotic pose are the blue bodied Krishna and the golden complexioned Radha. She is holding his flute, prodding him to play the melodious times. But as of now Krishna is drowning in the beautiful eyes of his beloved. With one hand holding her head, coaxing her to come closer, he looks tenderly at her. He wears a multi-layered crown and jewellery on every part of his body. Radha is also adorned in the traditional jewellery and attire. The closely intertwined lower bodies makes it difficult to distinguish one from the other's.

In his enthusiasm, the artist has used multiple colours on single garments. The lower garments of Radha and Krishna have different colours and a printed design, making it look cluttered and interfering. Bright and bold single colours could have added more beauty to this silk painting. Nevertheless, beauty lies in its simplicity.

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.
John, USA
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 !
