This is best I have seen so far.. can't believe it is rangoli... seems more like painting.. Absolutely wonderful piece of work and what a unique idea. You should make wall hangings and sell it .. it will be a bit hit. Keep up the great work.. but for people like you this kind of art would have died long back.

A novel idea certainly. These are drawn and arranged neatly. The details are a bit small for my eyes as each image itself is like a stamp. I would have preferred to one or two of these scaled up drawings than all of them. However, I have a fundamental question. God, any god for that matter, is the Lord of all the world(s). So is it okay to represent Him or Her as a scorpion or cancer? Overall, very imaginative and quite artistic. This year, I decided not to grade anyone. My dear friend, your enthusiasm and participation makes you already a winner in my opinion.

tweetychirpy's picture

Absolutely mind-blowing...no words...m speechless....Hats off to ur patience n talent....Simply marvelous...Wat best tribute to Lord Ganesha can be....other thn this....

@jkmrao: Lord represents Him in all forms...whether it was Matsya avatar or Kurma avatar or Varaha avatar or even narsimha avatar.....Its just about the imagination that how and where do you see you Lord....

The artist really needs an applause!!!!!

jkmrao's picture

To my friend tweetychirpy!
I did appreciate the art work as " very imaginative and quite artistic". I never decry anyone's art work. I only try to critique in a positive way so that the artist, if he/she agrees with my opinion, may be able to improve the art. This does not imply that the art work is bad. Coming to the point, I understand that God is everywhere and is present in all living and non-living, fixed and moving objects. However, we always associate God with the best qualities and objects we may imagine. Even though God may be present in HIV virus, we don't represent God in the form of HIV virus. That is why annamAchArya says thus in his song "entamAtramuna evvaru talachina anta mAtramE nIvu" (you are bound only by people's imagination). After all, whether God created man or not, man certainly created God and religion. In that way, I found it a bit perplexing to see God as a scorpion or a crab. This is not that I am against scorpion or the crab. But the moment one sees a scorpion, one thinks whether it is going to sting, not the other good qualities it may possess. It is only this that made me comment thus and I still feel the same way. If I differ with the artist's interpretation, it does not mean that I consider his / her art not good.

ushavenkatesh's picture

wxcellent work. all the best.

tweetychirpy's picture

@jkmrao: i completely agree with you....not only with your point but also in the manner you had put your thoughts....

May be we are so possessive and concerned with the way our God is represented that we cant see Him being represented with anything that lies on negative scale....There might be concerns even about representing any God in the form of Rangoli...since it is drawn on the floor and it lies beneath our feet...and we definitely would never want God to be there...but then again its the artist's imagination, how he devotes his/her to art to God....

At the end, the point is whether we are able to assimilate the very representation of the God...in this case...may be you cannot and i can...and i hope the artist has positively taken your criticism...Good Luck!!
