This miniature, rendered using the late eighteenth century Guler idiom of Pahari art, portrays the holy family in absolute bliss. The painting most effectively reveals also the Indian ideal of Vasudhaiva kutumbakam, world a family, as in the painting, the boundaries of kinship, or family, transcend all barriers, natural as well as human. If Parvati, mother, is feeding one child, Karttikeya, from her breast, she is feeding the other, snake, from her bowl, and peacock, leaning from the branch of tree, knows that in the drink it also has its share. Lion, bull, mouse, peacock, and snake, so different in nature, not only coexist but exist in absolute peace and bliss. Shiva's mount Nandi and Parvati's lion are resting calmly under the same tree. It is not a world of master and servant, or man and animal. Ganesh, master, is grinding bhang for his father, while mouse, his vehicle, is enjoying a luddoo.

It is an evening of spring. The sun has set, yet from under the western horizon bursts its glow and renders the western sky pinkish-red. The evening has darkened lake-water but spring blooms in its lotuses. The tree, under which the holy family is camping, a huge Saptaparni, does not have flowers but foliage blooming in colours. Behind the Shiva family, there lay a large hill-range, brown and barren except for a few scattered bushes, suggestive of Himalayan upper ranges. Lord Shiva and Parvati are seated on their usual tiger skin laid over a level green pitch of land. Parvati has Karttikeya in his lap and is feeding him from her left breast Ganesh seated towards the bank of the lake is preparing bhang for his father in a grinding pot. Lest it fell he is holding the pot by his feet. His mouse, sitting near him, is enjoying a luddoo. It is constantly looking at Ganesh to find out what he feels about his luddoo eating. Shiva is wearing only a loincloth, though Parvati is well costumed and bejewelled. Her striped lehenga is quite typical.

This description by Prof. P.C. Jain and Dr. Daljeet. Prof. Jain specializes on the aesthetics of literature and is the author of numerous books on Indian art and culture. Dr. Daljeet is the curator of the Miniature Painting Gallery, National Museum, New Delhi. They have both collaborated together on a number of books.

Testimonials
Fantastic! Thank You for amazing service and fast replies!
Sonia, Sweden
I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
