'Lord Vamana' Vishnu Dashavtar Patachitra Painting

'Lord Vamana' Vishnu Dashavtar Patachitra Painting

$80.00
In this spectacular Pata painting the Vamana incarnation of Lord Vishnu is vividly depicted. Lord Vishnu took the form of Vamana, the midget, to kill the demon Bali. He went to Bali during a sacrifice, where the latter was distributing gifts of the seeker's choice, to show his wealth. Lord Vamana meekly asked for three feet of land measured by his small feet. All on a sudden he assumed the massive form of Trivikrama, dominating the universe. With his first foot, Vamana covered the Earth, with the second the heavens. When there was no space for the third, Bali, who never went back on his word offered his head, and Lord Vishnu sent him to the netherworld. This genre of ethnic painting was born out of the cult of God Jagannath, the presiding deity of Orissa temple. Spectacular pictorial conceptions, characteristic conventions and vibrant color patterns make the Patachitra a unique treasure in the rich coffer of Indian ethnic art. Primarily executed on cloth, using natural colors, these ethnic paintings have charmed admirers across the globe.
