Rama Rides by molee Rama Rides by molee
Rama Rides Hanuman (completed)

Hanuman asks Lord Rama to ride on his back and confront Ravana in the battlefield
This scene occurs in Yuddha Kanda chapter 59, verse 124&125 of the Valmiki Ramayana.

If you’re wondering how Hanuman can bleed or get injured. There are several incidents where he gets severely wounded. 

For example:
In Yuddha Kanda chapter 67, verse 19, 20 and 21
Kumbhakarna strikes Hanuman's chest with his spear making him vomit blood and fall unconscious. 


Rama’s attire: 

Contrary to popular belief, in the Valmiki Ramayana, Rama was not wearing saffron colored robes while living in the jungle.
He was wearing clothes made out of tree bark and the material is known as bark-cloth.
Rama was also wearing the skin of a black antelope; he used to hunt beasts while living in the jungle for both food and clothing as it is recorded in Ayodhya Kanda chapter 52 and 56 of the Valmiki Ramayana.

He slays fives beasts for food in the ayodhya kanda chapter 52 and 56 they are : 

Varaha - wild boar
Rishya - white footed antelope
Prisata - spotted deer
Maharurur - an unknown species of deer
and Black antelope

Rama was wearing gloves fashioned out of the skin of an iguana(a reptile) to protect his fingers while performing archery. These gloves were known as “gaudheya anguli traanu” in sanskrit.

Rama was very muscular as it is recorded in the Ramayana.

He had numerous battle scars all over his body.

He made dreadlocks (matted hair) for him-self with the help of the sap from a banyan tree along with his brother Lakshmana and Nishadha king Guha.

Received the print last week, good quality, but it turned out to be expensive (almost 40$ for a 12x18 print including shipping), hopefully the artist gets a decent cut out of this.

Though I loved the anime, this was inspired from the Ramayana itself.
And yes, I've read the Ramayana. :D

If they made a movie about the Hindu gods that was as badass as this picture, I'm sure Western audiences would be more inclined to learn about Indian culture, similar to how Gladiator sparked the pop culture interest in Ancient Greece.

The Indian Series for Ramayana and Mahabharata were both pretty great, except for the special effects, which were lame

If they could meld the excellent acting and storytelling of those two series with the special effects of a modern day Blockbuster, they'd have something amazing
