The beautiful Kalamkari painting depicts eight forms of Ganesha in a deep sense of simplicity yet devotion. Ashtavinayaka refers to the "eight forms of Ganeshas" in Sanskrit. Lord Ganesha, son of Lord Shiva and Parvati, is the Hindu deity of prosperity and learning. The term refers to eight Ganeshas and Ashtavinayaka yatra refers to a pilgrimage to the eight Hindu temples in Maharashtra. The eight forms of Ganesha include: Mayureshwar, Siddhivinayak, Ballaleshwar, Varadavinayak, Chintamani, Girijatmaj, Vighnahar, Mahaganapati. They are Mayureshwar (Moresh) or the peacock rider, who slew the demon Sindhu following request from the gods. As Mahaganapati, Ganesha comes to the assistance of his father Lord Shiva in destroying the citadels of the demon Tripurasura. As Varadvinayak (the bestower of boons), Lord Ganesha is remembered in a legend related to Rukmangada. Chintamani Vinayak relates to the legend of Kapila Muni and the Chintamani gem that he had obtained from Shiva. Girijaatmaja Vinayaka is enshrined on Lenyadri Parvat, and is believed to be a manifestation of Ganapati as an infant. "Vigneshwara" is regarded as the destroyer of the demon Vignaasura. Ballal Vinayak is associated with a legend where Ganapati is said to have come to the help of a young boy, who was a big evotee of Ganapati. As Siddhi Vinayak, Lord Ganesha is said to have come to the help of Mahavishnu as he was drawn out in a long battle with the demons Madhu and Kaitabha.
