Above the Himalayan peaks, Garuda, the divine eagle of the god Vishnu, sees the Lord of Death hastening towards an exquisitely beautiful little bird. He decides to save it, and hides the bird away – but can death be cheated? An evocative take on a timeless Hindu parable of destiny and love, this handmade book is illustrated in the delicate and ornamental Patachitra tradition of art from Orissa in eastern India.
