The Lord Venkateshvara painting that you see on this page would be the perfect addition to yours. The stately central figure is overlain with a world of garland offerings, His fine limbs and divine gaze visible through the complex water-colour work. His aureole is designed faithfully after the style of South Indian temple architecture, at the zenith of which is the kirtimukham motif. Across the panel immediately above the aureole are the ten powerful avataras (dashavatara) of Lord Vishnu.
Surrounding the same are circular-shaped, evenly spaced out panels depicting Krishnalila, episodes from the eventful life of Lord Krishna. Zoom in on the dashavatara and the Krishnalila panels, each of which has been painted with superb precision despite the scale of the work. A colour palette of dusky brown and gold and bits of pristine silver conveys the majesty of Lord Venkateshvara.
