WOW! I have always adored these paintings. So good to seethem. So rich.
There is a text called the Devi Mahatmya written around 400 to 500 AD that these images refer to that I stumbled upon years ago. These particular paintings just blow me away. I wonder what Nasreen would think of these? She was secular; though she was born to a Muslim family. I think she was compelled by many different cosmologies.
Sherry Hello- These are so vibrant – What a fascinating time and journey you are on. Thanks so much for creating a blog and sharing your times. It’s all so enriching. xo Janny
Thanks Janny. There is so much in the miniature paintings but these particular ones are so compelling for me. The colors and the intensity of the images. love, Sherry
