As if to outperform the artistic achievements of their predecessors of Vijayanagar, the Mysore Kings patronized and gave shape to a stylized form, later referred to as the Mysore style which is as different and as unique as the Thanjavur style.
This exquisite painting in the Mysore painting style, depicts the eight manifestations of Goddess Lakshmi in exotic hues interlaced with bright gold and brilliant pigments. Unfathomably deep blues and flaming scarlet's give majestic beauty to the Vimanas as the benign faces of Ashta Lakshmi seem to promise to their devotees eightfold prosperity, wealth, health, grains, brains, bravery, children as well as bliss.
The worthy motifs of worship-like the Moon, the Sun, the Saints and the Sri Chakra (a tantric representation of Mother Goddess), carry this reprint closer to the devotees hearts.
This painting would be a worthy object in any mandir or palace - that's your home.
