Oil Painting on Canvas – Artist Giri Raj Sharma
Hindu life and belief is rooted in mythology of gods and goddesses. Theiradventures in their myriad forms are the source of Hindu philosophy,religious practices and social behaviour. Stories from the Ramayana are an integral part of the aural folklore, thoughtime and again art tries to visually narrate them. This painting depicts anepisode during the exile of Rama, Sita and Lakshmana. While they werewandering in the forest, they incurred the wrath of the demons. Surupnakha,seen here with a castrated nose, was a giantess who first tried to enticeRama, who resisted her advances, saying that he was married. She then leanedtowards Lakshmana, wanting to marry him. But Lakshmana also spurned her.Surupnakha then attacked Sita but Lakshmana in turn attacked the giantess,cutting off her nose. Surupnakha sought vengeance through her elderbrother Ravana and induced him to carry off Sita to Lanka.The unique aspect of this painting is that the artist has used differentbody colours for different people. He has used blue for Rama’s bodysignifying his role as an avatar of Vishnu; the fair Sita and Lakshmanabelonging to the mortal world; the dark and ugly Surupnakha symbolizes theevil side of demons and giants.The lush green and serene background stands witness to the gruesomeevent.This description by Kiranjyot.Of Related Interest:Of Rama and His lifeRama and FamilyRama DurbarLord RamaJai Sri RamaHare Rama Hare KrishnaRamayana in PicturesRama The Ideal ManSri Rama Lila
