The unity of nature is intrinsic to Indian thought and as such, is reflected in its art also. Thus, Indian art includes depictions of animals which are made up of human figures or other elements from nature.

What we see here is a fine example of a composite animal. Various animals and humans constitute the elephant. All animals are recognizable; human heads seem to be peeping out; birds are concentrated in the front body; but together, they are all juxtaposed so well, assimilating the flow and rhythm. The sheer naturalness of the painting is more striking than the individual elements.

The 'mahaout' is dressed in princely attire, wearing an eight-pointed crown with a plume, and holding an elephant goad in his hand. Another man, an escort perhaps, walks ahead, holding a flag, the tip of which has a goat face. The flag, the escort's shoulder cloth, the mahaout's waist band and the elephant's tail move in harmony from right to left, lending movements to the static picture.

नमास्कार परदेस में रहने वाले भारतीयों को अपनी सभ्यता व संकृति से जुड़े रहने का माध्यम प्रदान करने हेतु, मैं आपका अभिनंदन करती हूँ| धन्यवाद
Ankita, USA
Namaste, This painting was delivered a little while ago. The entire package was soaking wet inside and out. But because of the extra special care you took to protect it, the painting itself is not damaged. It is beautiful, and I am very happy to have it. But all is well now, and I am relieved. Thank you!
Janice, USA
I am writing to convey my gratitude in the service that you have provided me. We received the painting of the 10 gurus by Anup Gomay on the 2nd January 2019 and the painting was packaged very well. I am happy to say that the recipient of the gift was very very happy! The painting is truly stunning and spectacular in real life! Thank you once again for all your help that you provided.
Mrs. Prabha, United Kingdom
I am writing to relay my compliments of the excellent services provided by exoticindia. The books are in great condition! I was not expecting a speedy delivery. Will definitely return to order more books.
Dr. Jamuna, New Zealand
I just received my powder pink wool shawl. It is beautiful. I bought it to wear over my dress at my son's wedding this coming Spring & it will be perfect if it's chilly in the garden. The package came very promptly & I couldn't be more pleased.
