This bracelet drives the devotion towards Lord Shiva, who is the most revered one, the creator as well as the destructor in the entire Hindu pantheon. It comprises of a hook-lock with two solid sterling silver bands arousing from it in a circular motion and meet to form a disc plate like a wrist watch, serrated from the edges and is bordered in gold color along with the supreme trishul (trident-three spikes), Lord Shiva’s implement, acquiring the centre position in bright golden color.
One can easily deduce the sheer amount of skill and labour that would have been used to form such an amazing, well organized and framed piece of devotional jewellery. Lord Shiva represents the supreme universal consciousness and the one who holds over all aspects of the universe; trident in his hand represents the three gunas- rajas, tamas and sattva depicting Shiva’s characteristic of being the creator, sustainer and destroyer, thus paving a way for a new beginning.
For those devoted towards Lord Shiva, this bracelet is a must buy, as it acts as a token of your devotion in reciprocation to Shiva’s urge for continuing with this cosmic cycle of waking, dreaming and sleeping.
Her chest-length, green blouse with golden banarsi laces tightens over her, exposing her deep and round navel with her light purple dupatta with golden embroidery resting on her mirror holding hand along with her baggy, green trousers that hang over her waist. With her other hand, she holds a comb entangled in her long, navel-length, bluish-black hair that covers her breast from the eyes of the envious kaneezes in the background. A small, red, round teeka sets between her eyebrows complimenting her jewel-studded, long jhumkas.
The seated beauty signifies the amazing phenomenon of love. It is widely obvious that she is lost in the thought of her lover and is doing shringara for him only and recalling her memories for him and has a mystic yet gorgeous glow over her face, picturing this aura with master strokes.
An inky Prussian blue or a resplendent natural gold, both colours suggest a bridal newness. The field is densely packed with embroidery, the skill and precision of which is best admired by zooming in on the same. The border comprises of multiple brocaded panels, which is a signature of Banarasi fashion. The bedspread comes with a set of pillowcases and two sets of cushion-cases of varying sizes, which you may use to furnish the couch. Dressing up your bedroom in this would ensure you get to retreat into luxury after a long, hard day.
The very image sends a chill down the adharmee’s spine. The protruding eyes, shaped like the fish of the deep seas, are hollow where the pupils should be. His portentous brow is like the black cloud of a fatal storm. Right beneath the widely defined nose is a line of bared teeth, all canines that are designed to eat into adharma. From the lower edge of the hollow of the mouth hangs a fierce tongue. There is no escaping the clutches of a deity such as Mahakala.
Lord Mahakala is a picture of destructive power. This power destroys kleshas (afflictions) and antarayas (obstacles of the soul). On His head sits an elaborate crown made of convoluted vines. Note how the composition, from the crown to the tip of the tongue, is perfectly symmetrical. Even the perforations on His skin have been made with a keen attention to detail, which is a hallmark of Nepalese handiwork.
This miniscule depicts the famous scene from Ramayana where Ravana abducted Sita to satisfy his ego of power and superiority. The painter has beautifully portrayed the epic scene keeping in mind all the thoughts and briefings that might have occurred at that time. The large black-white-grey colored bird seen on the right, hit by abundant arrows on head, neck and feet is the Jatayu, a divine bird and the king of vultures. Jatayu is Lord Vishnu’s steed and came to help Sita from Ravana, but was injured by him and died after narrating about Sita’s abduction to Sri Rama and Lakshman.
Dark Yellow background influences dual purpose of reflecting the setting sun of consciousness and its vibrant shade beautifully highlights other colors and figures. Lush green trees and small bushes that grow at the bottom clearly indicate that the Ravana’s rath is flying high in the air, so that no one can reach it. Painter has realistically painted Jatayu’s feathers and tail in multilayers and the ten-headed Ravana and Sita are garbed in a bright color palette. Framed in a contrasting red border, painter has very soothingly used his brushes in painting the interplay of colors.
