Pata-chitra, such as this, means a scroll painting on canvas. They originate from Puri in Orissa and mainly have the icons of Sri Jagannath, Balathadra and Subhadra. However, there are other categories of remarkable paintings.

This pata-chitra depicts elephants in different colours, moods and postures. The elephant in Indian ethos occupies a significant place. They are associated with clouds and life giving rain. Indra rides an elephant and Lakshmi, the goddess of good luck, is often shown being bathed by elephants.

The brown, black and grey elephants are interspersed with a powder blue ones which is an uncommon colour. Running, strolling, sitting, lying - elephants are shown in these postures and more. They are all adorned with ornaments and rich cloth covering their back. The royal animal looks royal! The painting exudes a feeling of joy and happiness. Each elephant, individually, has that expression as much as their movements have the carefree quality rarely associated with the pachyderm who is considered bulky, wise and grim as an animal.

Fotis, Greece
I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.

I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.

Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
