Kumara-Karttikeya, Of Eternal Adolescence

Kumara-Karttikeya, Of Eternal Adolescence

Kumara-Karttikeya, Of Eternal Adolescence

Lord Karttikeya is eternally an adolescent, which is why the name Kumara-Karttikeya ('kumara' is the Sanskrit word for adolescent). This oil from the Exotic India collection depicts the Lord in all His youthful beauty: His peaches-and-cream complexion, the robustness of His child's body, and the vigour that marks His brow.

The freshness of the superbly long garland around His shoulders, just shy of kissing His gracefully poised ankles, complements the Lord's youthfulness. A bunch of gold-and-emerald necklaces reach down to varying points on His roseate torso. The one in the centre features a gorgeous lotus pendant, each petal of which has been crafted with exquisite perfection out of royal pink rubies. The kapdaa around His pubescent loins is made from the most resplendent silks dyed sacred shades of red and yellow. It is held in place by a chunky kamarband fashioned from dense quantities of gold, the ornate emerald in the centre lending it a divine appeal. Note how amazing the gold tassels look against the silken red of His loincloth.
 
The Lord sets in place a trishool with divine powers as He raises a soft, shapely hand in blessing. The trishool is studded with precious stones and smeared with three rows of ash. His other hand rests on His hip. Matching gold amulets and bangles grace His yet childlike arms. Dual gold anklets slide down to each of His feet. Note the elaborate tiara that completes His ornamentation, its playful features representative of the personality of the God. Ash is smeared on His childlike temple, set off by a red teeka between His brows. Glorious jhumke dangle from His delicate lobes.
 
A curvaceous, lamplit aureole frames His entire person, His beauty as intense as the numerous diyas against the vivid red background. A soothing tint of pastel blue is indicative of the heavens from where the Lord emerges. A highly lifelike peacock with its dazzling plumage of blue, red, and green, stands behind the Lord as His vahan. The airily shaded serpent next to them both is essential to the symbolism - according to Hindu philosophy, the dual presence of peacock and serpent is indicative of ultimate harmony. The holy trio stands atop a sumptuous brass pedestal flanked by tall traditional lamps, seemingly lending the whole painting a natural glow. The puja samagri in the foreground - replete with fruit-and-petal offerings, valakku, pestle-and-mortar, and handheld ritual bell - completes the painting.
