Lord Balaji is the presiding deity of the famous Tirupati Venkateswara Temple in Tirupati, Andhra Pradesh, India. He is also known as Balaji, Venkateswara and Govinda.
Lord Balaji is believed to be an incarnation of Lord Vishnu and is worshipped as the Supreme God. He is also known to be a protector of dharma, and is said to have manifested himself to save the world from chaos and destruction. He is also believed to be the giver of boons and fulfill the wishes of his devotees.
The painting of Lord Balaji by Giampaolo Tomassetti is a stunning representation of the Hindu deity, it sees him standing tall in the Tirumala Hills of Andhra Pradesh. The painting is brightly coloured and includes intricate details of the deities, their clothing and the surrounding landscape.
The deity is wearing a colourful red and yellow robe and a heavy large gold necklace with pearls and diamonds. The painting also features the traditional trident of Lord Balaji in his left hand and the gada in his right hand. There are a number of hidden details within the artwork which include reincarnations of Vishnu, you can see Varaha (the boar) on the left and Buddha on the right of Balaji.
As with many of Tomassetti’s masterpieces the intricate detail within this artwork can be revisited over and over and is truly a work of art and a must have for any collector.
