Where Traditions Meet

Rs.14,500 Inc. Tax

Buddhism was once a very prevalent and popular religion in Bengal, especially among the common and the marginalized people of Bengal. This was before the Brahmins threatened the religion and ultimately resulted in its extinction. However, in many different aspects there have been evidences of Buddhism having met with different elements of Hinduism. In fact, the Vaishnavism that was prevalent in Bengal had very strong ties with Buddhism. This picture too lays stress on such aspects in which the different elements of the Buddhist and the Hindu converge or meet. Thus, this painting depicts Lord Buddha with Lord Ganesha, the classical Hindu God of wealth and prosperity sitting on his lap. The Buddha has been portrayed as the classical form that was prevalent in Bengal and India during the period. Lord Ganesha who is the youngest son of the feminine Hindu God also seen as a mother figure, Goddess Durga, is usually seen as a child figure. Here, too Lord Ganesha has been portrayed in this particular light as the child figure seated on the lap of Lord Buddha. Though the background has no definite perspective, the viewer sees a number of attendants looking after the two figures at the front.
