Information from the artist, Joy Lynn Davis:

“17th Century Vishnu with Dancing Goddesses, Sankhu, Nepal”

The  image was painted with acrylics and 23 karat gold on cotton rag paper. The central god is Vishnu, the protector and maintainer of the universe. The two dancing goddesses attending him were stolen in the early 1980s. Even now the two niches remain empty. This is the first painting I did of this series. In 2010 I began the research for this series, walking all over the Kathmandu Valley in monsoon season, visiting sites of previously documented thefts. When I found this site, I was overcome by the powerful beauty of the shrine in the middle of the field. In summer 2011, I finally had the time I needed to find the vision for this series of paintings. I told everyone I was going out of town. I locked myself in the house without any distractions – alone with no phone or laptop. Even now when I close my eyes, I can envision the details of this painting more clearly than any other I’ve ever done.
