The solitary Lord Shiva is seated atop the peak of Kailash, His cosmic home next to the Mansarovar. The existential destroyer has His trusty Nandi for company, the mythic bull with the power of a thousand of its mortal counterparts. He rests one hand on its head between the horns, while in the other He holds an ivory conch that He regards with half-shut eyes. Shiva Nandi Oil Painting: https://w

The brown, sparkling eyes keep a steady gaze over the mirror, stupified by their own beauty, filled with kohl and green eyeliner that enhances their beauty. The red-colored lips have twitched into a smile and the long, elegantly straight nose sets over the smooth, wheaty-complexioned face of the woman. Her neck is adorned with two dim faux colored diamond necklaces and white pearl Mala tha

A young lady of distinctly noble bearing has stepped into the Shivamandir to pay her respects. She has duteously risen, dressed up, and arrived at the temple of her Lord at the crack of dawn. Within the bonds of her silence and sadhana, her roopa takes on an ethereal glow. She has lit the gold ghee lamp before Him. With her fair hands she lifts up the tiny basket of freshly plucked flowers that sh

Such was the depth of Mirabai's devotion that it commanded the living presence of Lord Krishna. She was a mystic of the highest order and belonged to the bhakti cult of North India. Her composure of countenance betrays the loverlike nature of her reverence, which is one of the many schools of bhakti. For the resplendence of the oils and the spiritual ethos of the theme alone would this painti

Lord Ganesha is a baal-deva, a child (baal) of the divine order of the devas. He is an integral part of Shiva-parivar and the Devi Durga offspring retinue in devotional art; and when portrayed alone, He is the scribe of the Mahabharata and/or the very picture of traditional opulence. The oil painting you see on this page is a singular depiction of the Lord. Quiet, gathered, solitary - such is His

Lord Mahadeva, the great (‘maha’) deva, is the manifestation of the Purusha, the consciousness substratum of all existence. According to Sankhya Darshana, when Purusha overcome by the charms of Prakriti comes near her and begins to reflect on her, it is the birth of all life. His wife, Devi Parvati, is the manifestation of Prakriti, the material substratum without which Purusha would have no m

She lacks neither beauty nor wealth. A powerful woman, not quite past her prime, sits with her legs crossed on a seat of red velvet and brocade cushions. She directs her gaze straight ahead of her, with all the confidence of the eldest bahuraani (daughter-in-law) in the absence of her mother-in-law. She is probably blessed with the love of more than one son in addition to her husband’s. In this

The storm outside the bottle is an oil painting by artist Anup Gomay whose central motif could be interpreted as hope. Artist may have taken the inspiration from the British adverb 'Storm In a Teacup', which slightly matches the title of the painting. It is an English adverb that means a small event that has been exaggerated out of proportion. Such is the subject and portrayal of the pai

The story of young Krishna was first told more than 2000 years ago. Originally recited by bards from memory, it was later composed in the Sanskrit poem, the Harivamsa. The sun-like baby Krishna, Vishnu come to earth, was the delight of Vraja.
