Rsi Bhisma-A Moment In Time by angelmarthy Rsi Bhisma-A Moment In Time by angelmarthy
Rsi Bhisma, who is the elder of two side that begun the Bhatara Yudha's war of Bharata's clan, Pandava and Kaurava, seat in calm. He gazed at the Kurusetra and rethink of how could be the war of Mahabharata is on. This is really a precious and momentousness moment. All of his family battling to each other in the name of Dharma. Actually, he confused. He battle with himself about to serve his country or to protect his family. It is a kind of dilemma. But, his choice and commitment to serve the motherland was the great and hard decision ever for sure.

I think Rsi Bhisma is one of the most important character / figure after Sri Krishna at the Bharata Yudha's. He is my favourite patriot and warrior.

Bhisma, the King of Kings, the Prince that vowed to a life of celibacy to serve every king of of his beloved Kingdom. He lived right through the whole Mahabharatha, from start to end, through the span of fine generations, rumoured to be at least more than 200 years old.
The painting has captured his essence very well, Strong, Masculine, Royal, Knightly, Courageous, Wise and Kind.
His expression speaks a lot of his dilemma of the war, to serve his current King or to sacrifice for his grandchildren the Pandavas, it's all in the eyes and it's captured well here.
The texture is intricate, although my only issue is with the red cape. I would have loved the cape to be more like the left side which looks more like fabric than the right side which looks more like plastic.
The colour scheme reminds me of his power, or some may call it his "curse", the will to choose his own time of death. He suffered with this boon, yet he used it well, he allowed himself to be shot with arrows in the war by his own grandson Arjuna of the Pandavas, but he lay there with those arrows piercing his body for days and only chose to die when the war finally ended with the Pandavas winning it. Fire, Blood, War, the colour palette is truly superb.
What do you think?

no problem..kan kita semua mempergunakan bahasa Indonesia sebagai bahasa persatuan. MERDEKA!!:w00t:

Asik juga ya kayaknya Canvas Ranger ituh..trus poin terbanyak dapet apa ya?Nyoman udah dapet berapa banyak poin?
Reply
:iconkawai666:
kawai666 Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2010  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Betul!! Eh, karna ini mainnya perdivisi ya berarti kayak mempertahankan harga diri (antar villain dan hero) gituh.
Poinnya Nyoman belum tahu, soalnya dia masih Regeneration (belum masuk divisi), artinya masih nunggu adanya lowongan buka nanti. kalo udah masuk divisi ntar ada event war antara Hero dengan Villain. dan setiap war punya tema sendiri2, yang kemarin sih Piala Dunia hehehe


Walau bukan orang Bali, boleh masuk grup NakBali itu gak kak?

The detail you have put into this piece - the beard, the folds in his cape, the glow from the sun - is amazing. You have really captured Bhisma's contemplation as well.

Hi Hedwig :wave:

Trying to finish the whole series?How long will it take to watch the rest?:D by the way, how did you get the DVD?I watched the series from National TV in my country only.
I plan to collect the DVD too for sure. Mahabharata is a great epic. It is worthfully irreplaceable. The epic narrates lot of lofty and sublime moralities.It is good for our views about life and how to show good judgement in a confusing situation or dilemma.

I can't say how long it takes to finish it all but there are about 95 episodes which are roughly 40 minutes each. My grandma got the DVD set as a gift so I just borrowed it from her. I'm sure you can order the set online from ebay or someother place online.

One really interesting thing I heard about the Mahabharat is that every situation that ever happened in history can relate one way or another to something that happened in the Mahabharat and it is hard to find something that doesn't relate to it. This is why I find the Mahabharat such a fascinating epic.
