Admin, the term 'Mahishasur' is a name or title of the Asura King. So, plz instead of writing Buffalo Demon, write Mahishasur.. Plz stop the translation of names to English.


Lithograph print is available or not? It's very good

I will try from the museum

I agree. But the text and image is attributed to the source site.

Exquisite colours

Why is the Asura (Demon) always dark :/ Are there any fair demons?

I agree
