Lord Jagannath - Worshipped as 'The Lord of The Universe' by His devotees in India, and across the globe.
Story of the Painting
Lord Jagannath is an abstract representation of Shri Krishna, the eight avatar of Lord Vishnu. And Shri Jagannath-dham Puri is considered as the eternal abode of Lord Krishna with His brother Balabhadra and His sister Subhadra. This is the only temple where Lord Krishna is worshipped with His siblings.
This painting is a print artwork on Palm leaf, of an original Pattachitra, which is then pasted on a high quality paper to preserve it. It depicts the beautiful and unique idols of Lord Jagannath in black colored face, Lord Balabhadra in white and Devi Subhadra in yellow colored face. The icons of the sanctum are very unusual as they are incomplete wooden carvings, which is very distinct from how other Hindu deities are traditionally made perfect. And the same idols are made as a beautiful illustration in this piece of art.
Lord Jagannath is the most compassionate and generous God for His devotees and thus the most beloved! Every year, there is a Rath Yatra procession in the city of Puri attended by lakhs of devotees, wherein Lord Jagannath is brought outside the temple with His siblings on chariot, which is then pulled by His devotees all along the Yatra. Similar festivities are celebrated by His countless devotees around the world.
