Jagannath in Abakasha Vesha Watercolor Painting
Jagannath in Abakasha Vesha Watercolor Painting

Lord Jagannath is an abstract, fluid deity. He is widely considered to be a representation of Lord Krishna Himself, while in some subcultures (Shaiva and Shakta traditions) He is a tantric Roopa (form) of Lord Bhairava. He is part of a triad that comprises Balarama and Subhadra, who are his siblings. As could be seen in the painting on this page, the iconography is exceedingly basic - Jagannath-Balarama-Subhadra is little more than vividly decorated stumps of neem wood, that also minimally, with makeshift limbs of wood and rudimentary cephalic features.

A composite pedestal accommodates all three deities of the triad. It is engraved with densely packed lotus petals, of a glassy blue-gray charcoal color. Jagannath-Balarama-Subhadra stands upon it, against a black night sky strewn with bright white flowers. Their respective forms are a shining ivory color with overtones of gold. The same is overlain with streams of rube-red silk, the upper garment of Devi Subhadra in the center being more fitted around her feminine form. While Lord Balarama and Devi Subhadra have shapely, orange-colored cephalic structures with white and gold mukhamandala, respectively, Lord Jagannath Watercolor Painting has an angular head and a characteristic dusky face.

Temple-like structures frame the three central figures. Their bright colors and perfectly symmetrical architecture add to the vibrant aesthetics of the composition. Featuring a deep green-colored frame, such a colorful pattachitra of regionally worshipped deities would be a significant addition to your Indian folk art collection.
