I was walking past a charity shop here in the UK some weeks ago and happened across this huge artwork depicting characters from Indian (Hindu)
religion/mythology. I expected the piece to be some £200 but was shocked when the member of staff said it was just £40.
Eagerly I snapped it up and carted it off home. This thing is big. Around 2.5 metres in length.
I would really appreciate some help in finding out what is depicted here. From the research that I have done it appears to be a number of different
stories from the Ramayana but with limited knowledge I am struggling to piece it all together.
I see in the middle who I think is Sri Rama, then at the top the five headed snake Shesha. Then I see the ten headed King of Lanka: Rakshasa. So is
this the story of the kidnapping of Sita? Where is Sita on here?
Short of this paltry effort I am struggling to find out what is going on here. What are all the little bits going on around it? Like the five headed
guy holding the snake? The boar-men (Varaha? but why are there two?)?
Help would be much appreciated :-)
