This painting is inspired from one of my childhood memories. So why is the door frame sacred? There is an interesting story from Indian mythology.

There was a demon king who appeased one God (we have multiple forms of God) and asked for immortality. God said, 'Anyone born must die so ask for something that your death will be delayed or difficult'.

So he really thought about it and came up with a brilliant demand. 'Okay, I may not be killed by a human or an animal, neither during the day nor in the night, never with weapons, and neither inside a house nor outside, neither on the ground nor in the space, also not to be killed by a naturally born entity.'

He was granted his wish and the demon king turned into a true rat creating havoc in the world. So finally the dooms day arrives and he is angry with his own son who is an ardent devotee of Lord Vishnu. He asks his son, 'Do you think your Lord is everywhere, even in this pillar'? The kid says, 'yes'. So the angry king breaks the pillar.

A weird entity surfaces out of the pillar! It has a human body in the lower half and with a lion in upper half....he is 'Lord Narsimha' perched on the entrance door frame of the palace and makes the demon king lay on his lap and tears him apart through his intestine just using his nails much more dangerous than manicured long nails and the time was evening!

So as children we were always told to never stand on the door frame or sneeze or do anything that's disrespectful to the door frame.

This painting is a piece of traditional India. The decor is as done on festive occasions with domestic animals around!

I really enjoyed my time doing this painting and happy to release it during Diwali!
