Nina Paley's Avatars of Vishnu

Earlier this year, Nina Paley of the Sita Sings the Blues fame released a series of artwork, in her distinctive style, titled the Avatars of Vishnu. The artwork was originally designed for the Brooklyn Museum, in the traditional Javanese shadow puppet style.












Gnaana now offers the artwork as a calendar for 2012, with all the South Asian holidays marked.

Go here to check out the other avatars and to download them under Nina Paley's revolutionary free license- CC-BY-SA.
Go here to buy the calendar.
In 2013, I would just cut out the images and frame them for some Nina Paley's museum-worthy artwork on my wall.
