Nabagunjara – traditional artwork of Odiya artist

Navagunjara is the traditional artwork of Odia artist, the art source is derived from Odia Mahabharat by Sarala Das . Sarala Das is the fifteenth century old Odiya poet, his famous literature Mahabharata, Vilanka Ramayana, Chandi Purana, Laxmi Narayana Vachanika. Once, when Arjuna was doing penance on a hill, Krishna-Vishnu emerges him as Navagunjara. Navagunjara has the head of a rooster, and stands on three feet, those of an elephant, tiger and deer or horse, the fourth limb is a raised human arm carrying a lotus or a wheel. The beast has the neck of a peacock, the back or hump of a bull, the waist of a lion, and the tail is a serpent. Initially, Arjuna was terrified as well as mesmerized by the strange creature and raises his bow to shoot it. Finally, Arjuna realizes that Navagunjara is a manifestation of Vishnu and drops his weapons, bowing before Navagunjara.
