This is a flamboyant re-creation of Indian mythological theme in a Western manner. The sensibility of the painter, as expressed in the selection of the theme and its treatment, is unmistakably Indian. This painting contains the Indian synthesis, a respect for the techniques and traditions of the west together with a true admiration for all that is genuinely and basically indigenous.

This tall and lissome Durga rides her mount, the tiger. She resembles in no way the Durga image that we are accustomed to seeing. Here, the painter builds a creative bridge between the old and the new. Only the iconic image has been experimented with, the message and implication remains the same. She wears a metal bustier and carries attributes associated with the goddess. She wears a tiara, together with a headdress that extends a long length. People, recipients of her grace and benevolence, are represented by a couple of tribals standing on lower hills. They are dressed in attire akin to that of the north-eastern states. The hands of both the man and the woman, are on the hilt of the swords, ready to draw them out and attack if need be. Durga, standing overhead is symbolic of the shadow of protection and benevolence of the great goddess. Durga is known to have a dual characteristic – a fierce nature and a gentle one. The background is reflective of the same. One side of the background has the light of the rising sun and the other is dark and stormy.

This magnificent work is tactile and enigmatic as only textured oils can be when the painting is both figurative and symbolic.

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

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.
Pamela, Canada
I very much appreciate the tailoring service you offer. Many friends are delighted to see my last purchase. Hopefully more customers will contact you soon.
