7 Secrets from Hindu Calendar Art

Devdutt Pattanaik


In Circulation

Hindu mythology abounds with fascinating gods, goddesses and characters whose visual representations through calendar art are equally colourful. Hindu calendar art may seem fantastic and kitsch, but it is in fact the most democratic expression of a mythic imagery that was once restricted to temple walls and palm leaf manuscripts.

These portraits of the Hindu pantheon of gods and the stories that surround them can be found on the walls and puja rooms of almost every Hindu household in India. Rich in symbols, each image is a piece of an ancient metaphysical jigsaw puzzle.
