Hinduism Artwork by Sanjay Patel at Asian Art Museum

Hurry, before the exhibition closes (April 2012). The Asian Art Museum in San Francisco presents Maharaja: The Splendor of India's Royal Courts. An impressive collection of pieces dating back to the 18th Century, the exhibit highlights royal family life.

Another exhibit you'll want to catch is from Pixar animator, Sanjay Patel, entitled Deities, Demons and Dudes with 'Staches: Indian Avatars. His cartoon artwork, derived from Hinduism, is simply amazing! And, by strategically placing stickers throughout the museum, kids can link historical artifacts with the fun and accessible imagery Sanjay provides.

Lord Shiva Kali
Hindu God Cartoon Rangoli

None of these do the artwork justice. Consider picking up Ramayana: Divine Loophole, a nice coffee table book with illustrations from Mr Patel.
