style paintings always stand out from the ordinary paintings because of their
special feature of embellishment with coating of pure gold and stones with
great precision. In this painting, Kamadhenu is magnificently portrayed. As per
the Vedic scriptures, Kamadhenu is a wish fulfilling cow that grants the
seekers whatever they wish and desire, and thus is honored and considered to be
the mother of all cows. The mother cow is revered as one among the seven
mothers of a living entity who should be given respect at all times. She has a
great spiritual significance; she is an endless giver of resources and
nourishment; her milk sustains the life of many species and her urine is used
for many medicinal purposes.
body complexion is like the pure white clouds floating in the sky, the four
legs represent the four Vedas, her sharp conical horns symbolize the Trimurti
Gods Brahma, Shiva and Vishnu, and her face symbolize the sun and the moon. She
is portrayed as a white cow having a female head and wings of a tropical bird.
Long black hair braided with golden tassels reaching her breasts and a bunch of
neckpieces around her delicate neck look beautiful. A soft and gentle smile on
her face describes her merciful and unconditional nature as she provided
everyone with everything. She is decorated with a cloth and a tinkling bell
around her back. Her four legs represent the four purusharthas of life that
help us to achieve our purpose of human life; Dharma, Artha, Kama and Moksha.
The special feature of this painting is the coating of the adornments with pure
gold and stones with precision. The Tanjore style paintings always stand out
from the ordinary paintings and this one has proved it.
