Presenting a beautiful miniature painting of Shitla.
Bask in the glory of this painting of Shitala (Sheetala) who is a Hindu goddess widely worshiped in the Indian subcontinent. As an incarnation of Supreme Goddess Durga, she cures poxes, sores, ghouls, pustules and diseases. Goddess Sheetala is worshiped on the eighth day after festival of colors (Holi), on the occasion of Sheetala Asthami.
As per Hindu legend when the Gods performed a sacrificial fire ceremony for Goddess Durga, from that fire emerged Goddess Shitala. Shitala is represented as a young maiden crowned with a winnowing-fan, riding a donkey, holding a short broom (to dust off germs) and a pot full of cold water (a healing tool).
