Mahabharata – Bhima and Bhagadatta£ 145.00 – £ 745.00 BUY
Bhima is endowed with extraordinary strength and his spectacular feats inspire artistic imagination. He was known for his voracious appetite and in battle he could kill warriors with their elephants only with his mace.
It was possible to trace him on the battlefield simply by following the trail of elephants he had slaughtered. His herculean strength, the fiery character and his total devotion to Lord Krishna and his family led him to perform legendary feats.
The furious and passionate temperament of the great warrior, the bright colours, the red dress, and piercing look of his eyes when fighting – everything speaks about the character of a Kshatriya, always totally committed in defence of society and the moral principles that rule it.
Mahabharata – Parthasarathi£ 155.00 – £ 755.00 BUY
This is the very heart of Mahabharata, this is the moment that decides how the game will be played. This is the very moment upon which the entire Mahabharata has been written.
The majestic chariot enters the battlefield of Kurukshetra, where the armies are lined up, ready to clash. In these circumstances, Krishna reveals to his friend and devotee Arjuna the secret of Vedic knowledge. The fundamentals of wisdom are conveyed, as he speaks of truth and deception, illusion and reality, virtue, passion and ignorance. The deeper aspects of the psyche, the transcendental nature of the self, the relationship with the Godhead and with other living beings, all come to light very clearly in this dialogue whispered in front of the two armies, and recorded in the Bhagavad Gita (the song of God), one of the primary texts of mankind’s spiritual history.
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 Rush of the Hero£ 165.00 – £ 755.00 BUY
Bhismadeva, also called Pitamaha – the patriarch, is an oxymoron between old age and his surprising agility and superhuman strength. Fate and code of honour had decided that he was to stand against the Pandavas. Even as he was fighting them in his heart he was on their side.
Mahabharata – The Young Hero£ 150.00 – £ 665.00 BUY
The intense and poignant moment of the death of Abhimanyu. Enemies strongly desired his death and they killed him by deception and betrayal. Surrounded and pierced by innumerable arrows, Abhimanyu stoically fights to his last breath. The young hero’s expected and untimely death enhances his valiant glory.
The artist deliberately seeks to capture the adolescent prowess of the invincible Abhimanyu. Although the body is well shaped and toned, the proportions of the head are slightly larger compared to the body, not unlike the sculpture of David by Michelangelo, thus reflecting the typical physique of a young man not yet in his twenties.
