The Panihati Festival, oil on canvas, classical realism, spiritual art, by Dominique Amendola




This painting is a large piece and is under strict copyright to Dominique Amendola and may not be reproduced in any form. 
In this picture, there is a reunion of many sadhus (sages) at the occasion of an invitation of Raghunatha Das who was asked by Lord Nityananda to put up a festival and feed many saints. He suggested that he organize this festival and with his wealth feed thousands of vaishnavas. They gathered by the banks of the Ganges and were served flat rice with yogurt and bananas. In this painting, Lord Caitanya is not visible to all. He appears to lord Nityananda and they playfully feed each other, while the others might not be aware of His presence. Some of them simply see Nityananda sitting by Himself. This is a commissioned painting and I realize that the subject is a bit complicated for some. However, I wanted to make this painting available to a small group of followers. The style of this art work is very classical.
