'Then unseasonable rainy weather came on, it rained day and night for the whole week. So that the Great exalted One (Buddha), would not be assailed by the torrent, the Naga king named Muchalinda emerged from his abode, threw his coils around the Buddha and covered him for seven days with his splendid well-shaped hood' (The Mahavastu).

This description from the ancient Buddhist text Mahavastu is the inspiration behind this sculpture. Here the Buddha is shown seated on the coils of the serpent king, protected by his hood. The composition is heavily influences by the aesthetics of Thai Buddhist Art what with the pronounced pointed projection on Buddha's head as also the angular features on his introspective face as also the stylized, almost dragon-like hood rising behind Shakyamuni. The towering hoods convey a sense of elemental power as compared to the tranquil and serene Buddha.

Testimonials
Your books arrived in good order and I am very pleased.
Christine, the Netherlands
Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...

Je vis à La Martinique dans les Caraïbes. J'ai bien reçu votre envoi 'The ten great cosmic Powers' et Je vous remercie pour la qualité de votre service. Ce livre est une clé pour l’accès à la Connaissance de certains aspects de la Mère. A bientôt

Namaskar. I am writing to thank Exotic India Arts for shipping the books I had ordered in the past few months. As I had mentioned earlier, I was eagerly awaiting the 'Braj Sahityik Kosh' (3 volumes). I am happy to say that all the three volumes of it eventually arrived a couple of days ago in good condition. The delay is understandable in view of the COVID19 conditions and I want to thank you for procuring the books despite challenges. My best wishes for wellness for everyone in India,
Prof Madhulika, USA
