Many of the myths and legends of the Warlis center around the beautiful corn goddess Kansari. These legends are mirrored in the wall paintings of the tribal homes. These paintings depict every hue of life in white only. The Warlis do not seek the help of other colors.

This is a marriage painting known as the 'chawk' drawn by savasinis only. Savasinis are women whose husbands are alive. Here, the fertility goddess Kansari is framed in a square of ornamental, geometrical designs. She has four limbs, two miniscule legs and a pin shaped head emerges from her body. The body is not rectangular, but a curious unity of two triangles. She is covered with diamond shapes and surrounded by striking symbolic motifs. The moon and the stars represent the driving force of the cosmos; a fine toothed comb and a ladder depict combing out of evil, and a way up in life respectively.

The triangle above the main rectangle is resplendent with similar geometric pattern and in the midst has the auspicious pot containing the fruits of abundant nature. This pot personifies Palghat, the Goddess of trees and plants.

The space around the chawk is filled with trees, animals, and humans engaged desultory in some activity. These describe the preparations that take place for the wedding. Ostensibly, the band players' looming shapes seem to emerge from the nether world as it were, perhaps to bless the bridal couple. Playing the band, dancing, carrying loads or just standing; whatever they are engaged in, is work, a buzz of activity, the essential expression of man.

The animals are elongated, emphasizing the stomach, and the trees are highly stylized.

This description by Renu Rana.

I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.

Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
