  • Product Code :731
  • Material :Tussar silk
  • Size :12" x 18" (painted Area)

    Lord Krishna in his childhood used to be very naughty like hundreds other children. He had a strong liking for butter. He along with his friends used to steal butter because of his strong liking for the milk-product. But despite this all the Gopis in Vraj (place in India where Krishna grew up) loved him. It is said that Krishna would steal the butter, that the Gopis would prepare. The Gopis would keep complaining to Yashoda (Krishna's foster mother) that Krishna steals their butter and breaks their urns full of water. One day Yashoda got very angry with Krishna and ran after him. But she could not catch him. You know why? Because while she was running after Krishna, his back was towards her. And the back stands for all the wrong things. So that means that if you are running after the wrong things in life, you will not be able to catch Krishna.

          Various parts of the temple have been painted with some fabulous line formations and vibrant colours. The origin and development of Patachitra paintings are inextricably linked with the Jagannath Cult. Each year, the painted wooden images of Jagannath, Balabhadra, and Shubhadra in the Jagannath temple of Puri are ritually given the holy bath. This cleansing leads to the discoloration of the images. Hence, they are removed from the 'garbha griha' (the Seat in the Temple) for repainting. During this period, the temple images are substituted for three paintings, depicting the holy trio, cloth, Chitra = painting). Originating as a ritual, the Patachitra has evolved as a distinct school of painting and is regarded today as one of the most cherished collectors' items.

In Kali's most famous myth, Durga and her assistants, the Matrkas, wound the demon Raktabija. But with every blood that is spilt from Raktabija, the demon reproduces a copy of himself. The battlefield becomes increasingly filled with his duplicates. Durga, in dire need of help, summons Kali to combat the demons. Kali destroys Raktabija by suckling the blood from his body and putting the many Raktabija duplicates in her gaping mouth. An overjoyed Kali starts dancing on the battlefield, stepping on the corpses of the slain. Her consort Shiva lies among the dead beneath her feet. Kali, becoming drunk on the blood of her victims on the battlefield, dances with destructive frenzy. In her fury she fails to see the body of her husband Shiva who lies among the corpses on the battlefield. Ultimately the cries of Shiva attract Kali's attention, calming her fury. As a sign of her shame at having disrespected her husband in such a fashion, Kali sticks out her tongue and stops her frenzy.

                        Patachitra is a popular style of painting in Orissa. In this spectacular painting, Lord Vishnu is painted as Matsya. The Puranas speak of the ten avataars of Vishnu.
                        According to Puranas, before the creation of the universe, the four Vedas (the holy books delivered from the mouth of the Supreme-God) remained drowned in deep waters. It was necessary to get hold of them to instruct Brahma about the work of Creation. Vishnu was therefore appointed to bring up the Vedas from the deep, so he took the form of a fish, Matsya, to descend into the waters and rescue the sacred books.
                        Lord Vishnu asked a sage to collect samples of all species and wait in a boat. The golden fish then dragged the boat through the great flood and enabled Brahma to start creation again.
                        According to another legend, a demon once stole the four Vedas and hid them under the sea. Vishnu assumed the Matsya incarnation and retrieved the Vedas back and then restored them to their original fragrance.
                        Lord Vishnu, one of the Trinity Gods in Hinduism, is responsible for the preservation of the universe.

                              In this spectacular Pata painting, Lord Parashuram, the sixth avatar of Vishnu, is moving forward with his axe. Parashurama was a Brahmin who belongs to the Treta Yuga, and is the son of great sage Jamadagni and Renuka. Parashu means axe, hence his name literally means Rama-of-the-axe. He received an axe after undertaking a rigorous penance to please Lord Shiva. Lord Shiva gave him the methods of warfare. A powerful Kshatriya king named Kaarthaveeryarjuna, who had 21 sons. The King once visited the ashram of Jamadagni, with his sons and soldiers. Jamadagni arranged food for the king and his soldiers. A divine cow helped Jamadagni for all these arrangements. Impressed much with his food, the king inquired about the cow. The sage told him that the divine cow, could give anything. The greedy king forced Jamadagni to give it to him. And had taken the divine cow by force. Once Parashurama was back, he went to the kings place and killed Karthaveeryarjuna. Finding the king being killed by Lord Parashurama, the kings sons had returned to the place of Jamadagni and killed the sage Jamadagni. After Parashurama returned to the ashram, his mother renuka has cried a lot saying his father had been killed. Lord Parashurama has attacked 21 times and killed the 21 sons of the king,and many many soldiers,with battles after battles,to kill many kshatriyas on the earth whose blood began to flow like a great river. For killing all the kshatriyas Lord Parashurama was associated with sins and had visited many temples and removed all his sins.

                                      Sati, meaning `true` was one of the daughters of Daksha. Sati is a Hindu goddess of marital felicity and long life and is worshipped by all Hindu women for the long life of their husbands. Sati is the first consort of Lord Shiva and his second wife is Parvati, the incarnation of Sati. In the Puranas it is mentioned that Sati lures Shiva from leading a lonely life into creative involvement in the world. Sati or Dakshayani is also known as Uma, Aparna and Sivakamini. She was named Gauri for her fair and golden complexion. She is also known as Dakshayani for being the daughter of Daksha. To win the heart of Lord Shiva, Sati abandoned the lap of royal luxury and went to the forest, where she devoted herself to austerities and the worship of Shiva. After a long time of rigorous penance, Shiva was finally pleased with Sati`s devotion and married her much against the wishes of Daksha. Daksha being an arrogant king cut off all his relations with Sati and deprived her from his family. Later, Daksha once organized a huge Yajna to which all the Gods were invited, except Sati and Shiva. Sati went to the Yagnya against the wishes of Lord Shiva. Shiva then provided her with a guide to attend the Yajna. Sati was greeted coldly by her father Daksha. They were soon in the midst of a heated argument about the demerits of Shiva. Daksha criticized Shiva in the face of all gods. Sati could not stand such abuse and she immolated herself. When Lord Shiva came to know about this devastation, he was furious. He created Virabhadra and Bhadrakali, two fierce creatures who wreaked chaos and disorder in the Yajna area. Everyone present in the Yajna along with Daksha was terrified. An enraged Lord Shiva performed the fearsome Tandava dance with Sati`s charred body on his shoulders. During this dance, Sati`s body came apart and fell into pieces at different places on earth and these places came to be famous pilgrimage sites for Hindus.

                                            This patachitra painting from Orissa stands out to be a unique creation in itself as the fantastic pictorial conceptions, the idiosyncratic conventions, the extraordinary system of line formations and vibrant use of colours have given this painting based on a theme of the epic Ramayan a bright efflorescence. The uniqueness of this school of painting was derived from some primitive forms of aboriginal art from Orissa or its neighbouring states. While the demons have been painted blue and black the banar sena (monkey soldiers) have been treated with yellow colours.A beautiful tradition of painting from Orissa, the process of preparing the canvas (Pata) is onerous and involves the preparation of a tamarind seed paste, mixed with water in an earthen pot and subjected to further treatment. When the canvas is dry, it is polished, a process that takes several hours. Once it is dry, the paintings ('chitrakarita') begin. A border is drawn around the pata. Then the outlines of the figures are drawn in white pigment. Next the background between the border and the figure or figures is painted in a solid colour, that are either natural or organic. Later, fine decorations are added to the picture. The painting is finished with a protective coating.
