The Haloed Soorya-Devata

Availability:
Sold Out
Specifications:

In a culture known to worship all that lends it nourishment, it is no wonder that the soorya (Sanskrt for sun) has been personified into a formidable soorya-devata (solar deity). The signature kalamkari painting that you see on this page captures the iconography of Lord Soorya as has been expounded in the fascinating narratives of the Puranas. His dark body is adorned in a world of resplendent gold jewels, His omnipotent eyes shining bright as He looks ahead into the distance and holds still the devoted onlooker.

The most inimitable part of Lord Soorya’s iconography is the chariot He rides, drawn by exactly seven horses. These horses may be representative of the seven heavenly bodies, the seven days of the week, or the seven major nerve plexuses (‘chakras’) of the human body according to hathayoga. Beneath His padmasana (lotus-seat) is an image of the dusky, flute-wielding Lord Krishna. A solid azure background populated with heavenly bodies and intricate embroidery, inherent in kalamkari art, on all four corners of the composition.

Sasaptashve ekachakre rathe Suryo dvipadmadhrak

Agni Purana describes Surya, the sun-god, as one who rides a chariot which consists of one wheel and is driven by seven white horses. In his two hands he carries lotuses. Broadly, this Orissa wall hanging, which in its style of rendering has a touch of Andhra's art of 'Kalamakari', has taken its model of sun-god from the Agni Purana, though with some deviations. The Agni Purana prescribes sun-god with two arms but the artist of this wall hanging has gone for four arms as per Vishnudarmottara Purana.

Aruna, the son of sage Kashyapa, with a whip in his right hand is driving the chariot.

I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
