Collage 187

I love everything Indian -- I have been practicing yoga since 1993 and have made several trips to India, the most recent in February 2010. The food, the art, history, culture. On my last trip I visited a museum -- whose name I can't recall and can't seem to find online, either. In any case, at the gift shop I picked up a boxed set of reproductions. Here is Krishna. This has nothing whatsoever to do with War and Peace -- but that's OK with me. More of this imagery to follow! -- Lola

  1. This one is brilliant! And Krishna has a lot to do with War & Peace, well maybe not the book as such...but actual War and Peace. :) The Bhagavad Gita deals mostly with that.

    The painting is an example of a "Surpur Miniature" - an extremely rare form of art now being revived by the efforts of Mr.Vijay Hagargundgi. Sister art form of traditional Mysore and Tanjore forms it is an offshoot of the Vijayanagara School of art.

    good work lola!!__home
