The Celestial Chariot: Great Indian Paintings


Depicting the scene of King Rama's return from Lanka, along with Sita, in the Vimana, made of Gold, by the Kuber, this folio from a dispersed Ramayana series is a brilliant work of art.

This detailed work is full of different scenes, Rama uniting with Sita; residents of Lanka in despair because of Rama's departure; monkeys having fun, diving in water; birds flying in the sky.

Currently, on display at San Diego Museum, this painting has been done in Pahari style.
