Orissa's Paata Painting
Scroll Painting on Tussar Silk
12.0" x 18.0"
This magnificent Ganesha on the silk painting from Orissa is the very picture of the macrocosm represented by Ganesha, dancing gaily on the rat representing the microcosm.

Here, Ganesha's body is as dark as the clouds, his white tusk has the clouds immobilized, his glance is like the rainbow, his exudations are like rain which makes the wheat grow. This black Ganesha wears a loin cloth of various prints. The bright, turquoise coloured uttariya flows from both his shoulders. He is adorned with anklets, bracelets, armlets, a pectoral is in his neck and an elegant crown on his head. A serpent encircles his abdomen. In his right hands, Ganesha holds a rosary, his broken tusk and an elephant goad. In the left hands he holds a modaka, his favourite sweet meat, a flute and an axe. It is interesting to note that the rosary is almost invariably present in one of the hands of Ganesha in most paintings from Orissa.

Ganesha gracefully lifts his right foot as he dances on the back of this tiny creative that also happens to be his vehicle. The rat or the mouse is the symbol of coiled up energy of the ascending and descending kundalini. Ganesha's vehicle here is saddled and its neck is adorned by a stylized pearl necklace.

This already colouful painting has more design and colour added to it by the twin four sided borders, that helps in making it more attractive.
