Oil on Canvas is a technique borrowed from the west; theme purely Indian and the combination is outstanding.

Sitting in the partially covered terrace, overlooking fertile green fields and a tranquil sky, is the bride to be, looking intently at the body decoration with henna, a herbal paste. She is wearing pearls, numerous bangles and other gold studded jewellery. Anklets, hampering the henna design on the foot, are kept aside on the table. Between the wide forehead and the well-rounded chin are shapely eyes with heavy lids; a straight nose and lips that resemble petals of a rose. Heavy earrings dangle down the delicate earlobes. The transparent odhini strategically reveals, while covering one shoulder. Comfortably sitting amidst cushions, she lifts up the skirt up to the calves, to facilitate the unhindered application of henna. She puts up her foot on a small stool for the same purpose.

The woman responsible for beautifying the hands and feet of the bride to be is simply dressed in cotton attire and sports silver jewellery. She requires all the concentration and not let her hand waver, in order to achieve a perfect result. Using a peacock feather, dipping it in the bowl containing henna paste, she transfers it on to the skin, forming an attractive pattern.

The artist has used architecture i.e. pillars and niches to clearly divide the outdoor and the indoor, the brightly lit exterior and the dim brown interiors. The bride, with brilliant colored clothes is against a brown background; the maid, with dark earthen hued clothes against the light backdrop – proving that the colour palette is decided with an aesthetic sense and a lot of effort.

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 !
