Religious pictures showing Brahmanical paintings are offered to pilgrims at the entrance of temples at Puri. These traditional paintings have their own depictions of features and figures and that itself distinguishes them from the rest.

This is an unusual painting depicting Vishnu and Shiva together with their spouses and vehicles. What is most striking about the painting is also the unison of the two vahanas – the elephant and the bull. The artist has given them two separate bodies but a common head with the features of two animals. Vishnu and Shiva have four arms each. Vishnu holds a conch and a discus in two hands and Shiva holds his trident and the drum in his hands. Lakshmi and Parvati hold a lotus each in their hands. They look similar in features and attire. Talking of attire, Vishnu is dressed in a royal manner with a crown and jewellery whereas Shiva is in a tiger skin tied around the waist with a cobra for a diadem. Behind Vishnu and Lakshmi stands Garuda, semi-human and semi-bird, swift as the wind. Since Durga is considered a form of Parvati, her vehicle, the lion here stands in obeisance behind Shiva and Parvati.

The painting is in typical folk style. The twin border around the painting reflects a similar, simple style. The colours here take a back seat to line and other iconographical details.

Ankita, USA
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
I am writing to relay my compliments of the excellent services provided by exoticindia. The books are in great condition! I was not expecting a speedy delivery. Will definitely return to order more books.
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.
