Transform Your Wall with Stories from Mahabharata

Do you like to keep art based on stories on your wall? Raja Ravi Varma was one of the best Indian painter to create beautiful paintings inspired from the epics. He created paintings from both Ramayana and Mahabharata. Here is one such painting from 3rd Chapter of Mahabharata – the birth of Bhishma.

About this Painting – In this painting, Raja Ravi Varma portrays the moment king Shanthanu stops Goddess Ganga from taking away their 8th child.

Shanthanu was king of Hastinapur. During his walks on the banks of Ganges, he notices an incredibly beautiful woman. She was so beautiful that Shanthanu instantly fell in love and proposed her for marriage. Little did Shanthanu know that the woman he saw was actually Goddess Ganga in human form. Ganga pleased with Shantanu’s love accepts his request and tells him about her condition for marriage – that he should never question her or her actions. The naive king agrees this and marries her. Soon a child was born to them.

As soon as the boy was born, Ganga takes him to river and drowns him. Because of the promise he made to Ganga, grieving Shanthanu could not ask the reason for her actions. As the years passed, Ganga gave birth to 6 more children and to each one, she did the same. When their 8th son was born, Ganga took him to the river. But, this time Shanthanu could not bear any longer. So, he questions Ganga for her actions – shattering his promise. Ganga leaves him and the son, who was later known by the name Bhishma.
