Artist's description:

This is part of the Dashavatar series- VAMANA AVATARA.

In Lord Vishnu's fifth incarnation, he transforms himself into a vamana or dwarf.
Bali, the grandson of Prahlad , was a famous demon. By leading an austere life he had acquired the power to rule the Earth. Indra and the other gods feared that some day Bali would conquer everything and defeat them. So they asked Vishnu for help.
Vishnu decided to be born in the household of a poor Brahmin. One day he went to Bali and asked for alms. Seeing the young boy, Bali agreed to give anything the dwarf asked for. Vamana asked for the entire land that would come under three steps. Bali agreed. The dwarf then grew in size and covered the earth and heavens with two steps. Due to lack of space he placed his third feet on Bali himself. He crushed Bali and sent him to the nether world.

Every print is hand pulled by me, and therefore proudly shows the various marks left from the rough surface of the Lino block, which furthermore give the piece of artwork that unique handmade quality that only Lino prints have. This is all part of the beauty of the medium and why I love Lino printing.

Please note Variations in colour of the screen are technically possible.
