India: Mā Bhārati

Mā Bhārati
Acrylic on Canvas, 20" x 24"
Original: $550/- (Approx Rs 30,000/-)

Painting of Mā Bhārati- the personification of India. The image depicts India as coming out of a fire-sacrifice in which the oceans act as the fire-pit.

Yajna or fire-sacrifice is the symbolic representation of cosmic manifestation of the universe. In Hindu mythology, whenever the Dharma/Righteousness degenerates and evil rises the cosmic energy-the Divine Mother(Adya) is invoked by a fire-sacrifice to reestablish Dharma and bring order to the cosmos.

In this painting, i have used the same theme to depict the revival of India free from the social-economic-spiritual degeneration that has set in over past few centuries.

When I was half-way through the painting, it looked like this:
