New ideas are being established, while old ones continually reinforced. There have been many methods of observation and stylistic rendering in the past 2000 odd years of Indian art, systems of art diversely individualistic.

In this wholly, chromatically rendered image of Buddha, a shapely graceful head smiles through. The painting is charged with vibrant colour and textural effects, achieved through oil based paints and enamel. The enamel not only holds the texture well but gives it a very smooth finish, contrary to the rest of the surface which is rough and granulated.

Buddha is depicted as the eternal and universal contemplative Mahapurush, with certain superhuman lakshanas such as usnisa, the symbol of transcendental wisdom, elongated ear etc. The face is given a mask-like tranquility, breaking through the barriers of colour and texture, to express the spiritual elevation of the Buddha.

Using a very limited colour palette, the artist has shaped and formed the subject matter and the treatment according to his individual vision. Using different yet related mediums, the artist has courageously experimented and shines through this work.

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 !
