Vishnu - die Wassergottheit

Eine der bedeutendsten Gottheiten der Inder ist Vishnu. Vishnu ist die Wassergottheit, der Inbegriff allen Lebens.

Die indische Künstlerin Umar Roychoudhury ist ihrer traditionellen Religion zutiefst verbunden. Durch die kostbare Ausführung ihrer Bilder bringt sie ihre Ehrerbietung zum Ausdruck. Edle Farben aus Indien, Blattgold und Edelsteine vollenden die aufwendigen Malereien. Jedes Bild ist eine Verehrung an die Gottheit.

Vishnu

"The primary source of the medium is my consciousness. In the artworks it appears along with the Eternity and endlessness into contact. For the visionary art, it requires an opening for the phy- sical, intellectual and contemplative eyes. I follow likewise the same object to manifest the entire spectrum of the consciousness of material perception and right up to the intellectual insight by means of my paintings. I believe in an existence of an above and above arch-type world, out of which my sacred paintings of the religion become visible.

The sacred paintings long for a contemplative voyage in the world of eternity, accompanied by an infinite study of truth.

The exhibited paintings, namely the motives of Buddhism, Hinduism and Christianity which predominantly overstep the philosophical essence of these religions, find their merit particularly in itself.

I considered this as my duty as to animate the higher spiritual reality and to experience the existence to implement this through the pictures of transcendental shining energy."
