The Splendour Of The Chariot- Borne Soorya Brass Statue
Lord Soorya is revered as the prime source of life and nourishment by the peoples of the subcontinent. His many names include Vivasvat (Sanskrit word for 'brilliant), Savitra ('nourisher'), and Lokachakshu ('eye of the realm'). Lore has it that He rides a chariot as brilliant as He is, drawn by no less than seven horses, across the skies each day in His bid to overpower the demons of darkness. He is one of the highest-order deities of Hinduism and a lesser-known deity in Buddhism. This sculpture of the highly venerated Deva depicts Him with His usual two hands, seated in padmasana in His chariot. In each of His hands is a lotus, an image of the sun itself constituting the halo behind His towering crown. Seated before the ornately engraved compartment of the chariot, with the reins of all the seven horses in His hands, is Aruna, the charioteer of Soorya.

Madhubani Folk Art Painting - Fish Mandala Art
A Mandala is of great importance in Hinduism and Buddhism, representing the universe. The Sanskrit meaning of mandala is ‘circle’ symbolic of fullness and that life is never-ending and everything is connected. Mandalas are often used as images of meditation which when focused on seriously can bring profound inner transformation. Placing a mandala painting on your wall is a way of decorating your home with spirituality; the intense formations and colours are a way of relaxation, just like leaving a part of yourself in the paintings of the mandala. The Madhubani fish mandala art shown here has its roots in the known Mithila village of Bihar, where creativity and perfection are characteristic aspects of every individual.
