here is the ebook about Mumbiram’s Watercolour Painting: “Hunter under the Bel Tree”
along with the story of a hunter and a flock of deer:“Lord Shiva’s Mercy upon the faithful Hunter and the truthful Deer”
In the painting you see a herd of deer has appeared at the pond under a Tree. There is a Shiva Lingam in the pond and Lotuses are blooming in the water. The deer are peacefully standing and sitting right next to this man, who is really a hunter. Why are they not running away ? The hunter has gone down on his knees folding his hands in a prayer. What is happening ? The tree is a Bel Tree with its typical round fruit. Bel leaves are very dear to Lord Shiva.
In the painting Mumbiram refers to this story of a hunter and a stock of deer who outdo each other in grace and get rewarded from Lord Shiva himself.
