This brass statue represents the human transform of the mythical cow Kamadhenu, the theme of many legends. Though sometimes considered as three different beings, Surabhi and Nandini are only others names of Kamadhenu. Scriptures refer to more than one Kamadhenu which sometimes seems to suggest that Kamadhenu was a generalization of any cow having divine or celestial attributes. In Sanskrit one of the meanings of ‘Kama’ is ‘ichchha’ – wish, and of ‘dhenu’, cow; thus, Kamadhenu denoted the wish-fulfilling cow. The progenitor of the entire range of cattle and believed to be a primordial power with a form wherein enshrined all gods and divine powers Kamadhenu is listed as one of the goddesses in Hindu pantheon and thus her human transform.

The mother of all cattle and the one who fed all gods and sages by her abundant milk that she produced, in some traditions Kamadhenu is included among Matrikas too. Incidentally, this image of the celestial cow has represented with the mother also a calf feeding on her thuds, something not usually seen in representations of Kamadhenu, perhaps because it only sought to individualise her, an otherwise divine form having universal dimensions. Maybe, while humanizing the cow into a divine form the artist’s mind was possessed of Kamadhenu’s Matrika links. However, in her form, partially human, cow-like and with feathers and a peacock-like tail, and with a lotus pedestal, the artist has conceived her as the being of the earth, ocean and the sky, that is, as having cosmic dimensions.

In mythological tradition Kamadhenu as Surabhi has her lineage from Brahma through Kashyapa and Daksha, Brahma’s descendants. Surabhi is variously alluded to in Puranas as Daksha’s daughter, Kashyapa’s wife, as also his daughter and the like. She is alluded to as undergoing ten thousand years long penance and winning from Brahma thereby her divine powers and status. Like Indraloka, Brahmaloka and others, Brahma created for her ‘Goloka’ as her independent ‘loka’ or region. Though more popularly Kamadhenu is attached to sage Vashishtha as his cow, she has associated with her several legends, mainly Vishvamitra-related, both when he was a ruler as also when he was performing penance in the forest, as also those related to Ashta Vasus, king Vaka, Indra, sage Agastya, Krishna and sage Jamadagni, the father of Parasurama.

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.

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.
