Product Details

Adoring Lord Krishna accompanied with two gopalas are adhered beautifully emphasizing his position as the divine herdsman in this painting encircled with devdaasi & lord. The ten avatars surrounded at the edges are the main attraction of this painting. There are ten commonly known avatars of Vishnu. All the ten incarnations are placed beautifully at the front. The Bhagavata Purana lists twenty-two and states that there are many more. It is generally accepted in Hinduism that Lord Vishnu is that manifestation of the Supreme God who is responsible for the preservation of the universe and for maintaining the balance between good and evil. For this purpose he descends on earth from time to time. These manifestations are known as incarnations. It's a colorful "Pattachitra" painting that means two cotton clothes are pasted by the tamarind paste & later it was painted by the natural stone color. Due to the use of natural stone color the images are even seen in the darkness. This painting is a traditional painting but we should try to find the real fine art of Orissa Craftsman. The 10 incarnations are:-
  • Matsya, the fish-avatar who saved Manu- the progenitor of mankind from the great deluge and rescued the Vedic scriptures by killing a demon.
  • Varaha, the boar-avatar, who rescued the earth from the ocean, by killing her kidnapper-demon Hiranyaksha.
  • Kurma, the tortoise-avatar, who helped in the Samudra manthan- the churning of the ocean.
  • Narasimha, the half man-half lion avatar, who killed the tyrant demon-king Hiranyakashipu, to rescue the demon's son Prahlada, who was a Vishnu-devotee.
  • Vamana, the dwarf-avatar, who defeated the demon-king Bali.
  • Parashurama, sage with the axe who killed the thousand-armed king Kartavirya Arjuna.
  • Rama, the king of Ayodhya and the hero of the Hindu epic Ramayana.
  • Krishna, the king of Dwarka, a central character in the Bhagavata Purana and the Mahabharata and recites of Bhagavad Gita.
  • The Buddha (Gautama Buddha) meaning "the enlightened one".
  • Kalki ("Eternity", or "time", or "The Destroyer of foulness"), who is expected to appear at the end of Kali Yuga.
Balarama, the elder brother of Krishna, is sometimes considered as one of the Dasavatar, omitting Buddha from the list. In other traditions, Balarama is considered as a partial avatar of Vishnu or an avatar of Shesha, the serpent on which Vishnu sleeps.
