Mahabharata – The Demoness Hidimbi

This artwork depicts Bhima and Hidimbi’s first meeting. A gorgeous forest becomes the right place for a romantic wild meeting of love, a bucolic scene of seduction with a hint of discreet sensuality.

Hidimbi belonged to the Rakshasa race, giant cannibals with supernatural powers who lived deep in the forests. Despite the major differences between them, their marriage is a short but happy one. Their union generated a much loved son, Ghatotkacha, who was very powerful, humble and loyal.

In the midst of such a dramatic epic, these few tender moments make for a welcome distraction from the pain of troublesome events.
