Presenting for your personal collection a beautiful miniature Yoga art.
This rare painting invites wonder at India’s extraordinary artistic heritage and with it you will feel the magic and spiritual enlightenment of Yoga. The art of Yoga constitutes a visual archive that attempts to capture one or several of its attributes, as a philosophical school, a Hindu tradition, a spiritual science and an exercise regimen.
Like yoga or indeed any aspect of India’s Hindu traditions, the identities of yoginis (female embodiments of yogic power) reveal continuous and multiple transformations over time and across sectarian, religious, lay, and geographic boundaries.
This art titled Yogini with Mynah (bird) epitomizes the supernal intensity and finesse of Yoginis. The artist has created the visionary image through daring manipulations of space, theatrical back lighting, and an improbable palette that plays modulated passages of salmon pink, smoky lavender, and dusky whites off brilliant orange, raspberry, and forest greens.
Impossibly elongated, the yogini has the ash-covered skin and the dreadlock (jata) topknot of female ascetics associated with the deity Shiva and is laden with jewels like the immortal yoginis described in illustrated Persian manuscript translations of Tantric texts.
Surrounded by surreal surging hillocks and hugely blooming flowers, she stands quite still, almost spellbound, though her gold sashes furl and the delicate tendrils of hair around her tilted head quiver. Her cool bluish complexion heightens the effect of her heavy-lidded gaze, slight smile, and intimate communion with the mynah.
