This is a almost 6 mtr high old painted wooden ceiling panel. On the panel is the story painted of Vishnu playing flute in the guise of a shepherd boy named Govinda. Krishna (also Krsna or Hari Krishna) is a major Hindu god and considered the eighth incarnation of Vishnu. He is perhaps the most popular of all the heroes of Hindu mythology.
Krishna's adventures are recounted in the Mahabharata, the Bhagavad Gita, the Harivamsa, and the sacred collection of texts known as the Puranas where Krishna is described as the Supreme Being and creator of the universe. The most ancient tales of Krishna involve his adventures with the Pandava princes whilst later, stories accumulated over the centuries which describe his eventful youth, when Krishna used his proficient weapons skills to good effect to defeat a host of fearsome enemies, demons and monsters.
We travel through India to find the most beautiful and unique items we can find. These products we found in abandoned factories, land washed ships, vintage local markets or other places that we have discovered. We restore, recycle and redesign the interior treasures that we find while preserving the story of their past. Our mission is to pass them on to a new home where they will be appreciated for many years to come.
