Product Description

Avatar Art offers a stunning panorama of the most popular figures in India’s array of avatars, gods, sages and demons. Explore a fascinating Vedic world portrayed by contemporary artists.

Learn why Visnu has four arms, why Siva dances and why Ganesh sports the head of an elephant. Read about the curse that created a snake-bird and led to a king’s immolation, and the dishonorable treatment of a queen that ignited the famous Mahabharata war. On these pages, Rama and Ravana battle it out, and the man-lion Narasingha protects a prince. Over 100 color paintings, each with a fascinating story.

Avatar Art is divided into three sections:

1) Avatars, Devas, Sages and Demons – draws almost all the imagery from the Srimad-Bhagavatam. Most of the personalities we associate with Indian imagery were introduced to the West through this sacred text.

2) This section shows the life of Krishna, the playful, blue-skinned boy, who is the Supreme Godhead – the drawings are mainly from the Srimad-Bhagavatam, but also from the Mahabharata.

3) The final section is filled with paintings of Sri Caitanya and his associates. Known as “The Golden Avatar”, Sri Caitanya was a sixteenth-century incarnation of Krishna.

    Open letter to Steven Rosen and Kaisori Bellach, writers and compilers of Avatar Art, Neo Vedic Paintings Celebrating Life.

    Thank you for this wonderful preaching platform

    I taught, as an Arts Educator for over a decade, the Isms, from Impressionism to Post Futurism. How it started, where we are at now, etc. I was part of FATE studios in New Dvarka in the 70s to 80s and consider all of the artwork that I have done since 1977 part of the Neo Vedic arts movement.

    I remember the name floating around New Dvarka in the early 80s, Neo Vedic. But nothing more occurred…With your publishing the purpose and method and a little of the history in Spiritual Art and especially Neo Vedicism, you have thrown down the gauntlet in the Arts Arena (the place where artists past present and future meet and talk) and announced A NEW ART MOVEMENT!

    This gives me an opportunity to…
    1. Get up on a Soap Box at art walk events and declare a new art movement in a “performance piece” and have copies of Avatar Art available.
    2. Get invited into art classes to guest teach the ISMs, including Literal Cubism and Neo-Vedic art of which I profess…show some of my work and most importantly, show the book.
    3. Book Tables.
    4. I have many Alums from my high school students and jr. college students that I still am friends with on FaceBook. I will post both Neo Vedicism and my current work a 10 year site specific project for the enjoyment of Sri Sri Radha Govinda.

    Thank you Prabhus, for this preaching opportunity.
    Hare Krsna,
    your servant,
    Manasa Ganga dasi
