Mahabharata – The Choice£ 160.00 – £ 790.00 BUY
It is the eve of the great battle of Kurukshetra, when the whole Mahabharata epic is about to be resolved. Sitting on His bed, Krishna announces that He is not going to side with either opponent. He leaves them the choice as to whether to incorporate his powerful personal army into their ranks, or to have Him alone, unarmed and in a secondary role.
Duryodhana, chief of the Kurus, has no hesitation in picking Krishna’s army, where as the Panadavas only desire was to have their dear friend Govinda, Krishna on their side. They are fully convinced that His mere presence on their side will ensure them final victory.
So it is, that Krishna accepts the humble role of driver of Arjuna’s chariot, and thus comes to be known as Parthasarathi.
Mahabharata – The Pandavas were cheated£ 155.00 – £ 770.00 BUY
At the bottom of the steps to the throne, in the middle of the royal room, a tremendous contest happened: it decided the destiny of the Pandava brothers and triggered the tragic event of the Kurukshetra war. The Pandavas are defrauded of royal rights and all belongings by their closest relatives with a rigged game of dice.
Regal dresses hide evil and dishonest personalities. The artist showed mischievous and sinister expressions on the faces of the devious uncle, Shakuni – an expert in the game of dice, and Duryodhana. He wanted to show, expressively, the two very opposing moods of the moment. Arjuna’s resignation, as he knows they are about to lose the contest, and King Yudhishthira’s display of anxiety, for the last throw in the game, where he knows he will lose everything.
