  • $ 19.99


Green-complexioned Rama standing in tribhanga on a low asana (throne). On his forehead is a Tengalai namam (mark of the forehead of the southern branch of Shri Vaishnavism). In his right hand he carries a crescent-decorated arrow (instead of his usual crescent-tipped one) and in his left a large bow, which ends in the head of a makara (mythical creature) regurgitating a cascade of pearls. He wears a white dhoti with a red temple design border typical of Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu. An angavastra (shawl) is tied around his hips and draped over his elbows, and he wears a crown, a golden kavacha (armor) with embossed motifs just below the pectoral muscles, and an udarabandha (decorative band worn below the chest). A floral garland completes his attire. The foreground is brownish.
