S. Rajam's paintings are a feast for eyes to behold. This gifted Indian painter created astounding paintings with a unique color-wash method that enabled color to seep in and set permanently in the grain of the canvas.S. Rajam's paintings look very vibrantly colored therefore.

This is a print of one such original art by S. Rajam. This painting-print is a scene of an episode from the Puranas known as Sagara Manthana (churning of the ocean). It so happened that gods and demons both decided to get together in churning the ocean to obtain Amrita, the immortality bestowing elixir. However, soon after they commenced churning,  scum emerged from the ocean in the form of a deadly poison which started spreading all over the universe.

Unable to withstand its fumes and heat, gods and demons rushed in Shiva's presence and beseeched him to contain the poison. The powerful Shiva scooped the entire poison in his two joined palms and consumed it but withheld it in his throat. He came to be also known as Neelkantha (the one of blue throat) from that day onwards.
