Explore this enchanting piece of Odisha's Pattachitra with this stunning artwork of Krishna's Mathura Vijaya. The artwork depicts Lord Krishna and Lord Balarama traveling on a brilliant chariot as the enthralled residents of Mathura gather to witness their adored deity. The Gopika’s make a caressing gesture beneath the chariot, seeking to prevent Krishna from heading to Mathura. The core artwork of Mathura Vijaya is surrounded by images of the Dasa Avatars, which depict Lord Vishnu's ten incarnations. The final picture depicts Krishna's Leela, which sums up his incredible travels from childhood to manhood. This Pattachitra masterpiece commemorates Lord Krishna's eternal attraction and divinity while telling the story of good triumphing over evil.
The merciless Durga brings the great Mahishasura to His knees. Her simhavahana (lion-mount) has him between its teeth, while the dashabhujadharini (the one possessed of ten arms) pushes Him down with Her feet and drives the spear end of Her trishoola (trident) into Him. Helplessly, the proud Mahishasura looks up at the feminine victor.
The work of art that you see on this page is a pattachitra of the Mahishasuramardini from Orissa. ‘Mardini’ is the Sanskrt word for slayeress, while the prefix ‘Mahisha’ means buffalo. This roopa (form) of the Devi is deeply worshipped in the Eastern Delta region, of which pattachitra is a traditional folk art form.
The sheer level of detail in this pattachitra makes this a collector’s item: from the embroidery of Mahishasuramardini’s saree to the miniscule motifs across the background. A superbly detailed temple entrance structure, complete with pillars and archway and templetop, frames the central ensemble. A powerful, lifelike composure characterises each countenance in this painting.

His limbs are gathered in lalitasana, and the right hand is raised in blessing over Shivagana. This Lord Shiva big statue is made from pure brass, which explains the glimmering gold colour.
There is a particularly lifelike quality about this big Shiva statue. The musculature of the limbs, the distinguished digits of hands and feet.

could well imagine what the Moon had given her: pure solitude and tranquillity.
That was the best thing the Moon could give a person. - Haruki Murakami
remark perfectly expresses the inspiration that a full moon provides to
individuals. It also emphasises the serenity and tranquillity that the moon
brings with its soothing glow. Moon has appeared as the protagonist in a number
of stories and poetry. It is also part of a huge art collection. This big home decor
of a moon, a tree, and a flock of birds is rich with symbolism. The moon
represents timelessness in this context. A tree branch represents the moon's
link to the land and represents a long-distance romance. The birds, as symbols
of freedom and transcendence, symbolise the human urge for emancipation and
flight beyond the confines of everyday life. This musical ensemble inspires
reflection on the universe's inherent interconnection, the search of wisdom,
and the eternal strive for peace between humanity and environment.
a green tree in your heart and perhaps the singing bird will come. - Lois Lowry
quotation exemplifies the mood conveyed by this brass
wall decor depicting a tree with flying birds. The tree is portrayed at its
most beautiful here, with branches full of leaves. The birds are seen poised to
take flight from the branches. The sculpture is fashioned in a circular shape,
which adds dimension to the tree's abundance. It is a hanging piece that can be
set anyplace. The use of brass, a strong material, validates the idea of
infinity. The representation of the tree's golden-tinged foliage has
transcended all levels of excellent creativity. When the little leaves with
their individual beauty are combined throughout the artwork, they exude a fine
sense of regality and exclusivity. This item, which is ideal for living room decor,
will undoubtedly connect the viewer with the tranquil sense of a natural
setting in which branches of a tree swing and birds sing.
as feathers, as fleeting as Zephyr, one moment they breathed pink, the next
they faded. Cherry blossoms were as much an inspiration for beautiful verse as
they were a reminder of life’s fickleness, she thought. - Alice Poon
and writers have often compared the ephemeral life to the short-lived cherry
blossoms. Flowers, like life, are beautiful but have an expiration date. This
spectacular huge brass
tree branch studded with exquisite cherry blossom flowers in full bloom and
buds is an ideal representation of both the cherry blossom flower and the
philosophy of life. The wall
decor, made of brass and its sheen, oozes artistry while also promoting a
connection with nature. Its splendid stature oozes elegance and grace,
bewitching hearts with its radiant display of spring's transient but stunning
the culture of Nepal, the beloved of Shiva
and Parvati- Sri Ganesha is revered as a harbinger of auspiciousness, who
removes negativity and bestows boons of abundance on the people. This wooden statue
delineates Ganesha in his most popular form, as a four-armed divinity, seated
in a royal posture, adorned with an imposing crown and kingly ornaments. On his
throne, two Mushaka are engraved in a unique manner. The balanced etchings,
carving, and polishing of the wood lend this icon an exquisite aesthetic
quality, which is best experienced in the animated eyes of Ganesha, who
steadily looks at the onlooker, removing all worries from the heart, filling it
with reverence for the Prathama Pujya.
