In this Tanjore painting, Sanjay Tandekar paints Goddess Annapurna- the Hindu Goddess of food and nourishment. Worship and offering of food are highly praised in Hinduism, and therefore, the Goddess Annapurna is regarded as a popular deity. She is a manifestation of the Goddess Parvati, the wife of Shiva, and is eulogised in the Annada Mangal, a narrative poem in Bengali by Bharatchandra Ray. The Agamas (religious texts) describe the iconography of Annapoorna as a youthful goddess having a red complexion a face round like the full moon, three eyes, high breasts, and four hands. The lower left hand is depicted as holding a vessel full of delicious porridge. The right hand with a golden spoon adorned with various jewels. The other two hands depict the Abhaya and Varada poses. She is depicted with wristlets and gold jewellery on her chest. She is seated on a throne with the crescent moon adorning her head. A few temples exist that are dedicated to her, the most prominent being the Annapurna Devi Mandir in Varanasi. Since Akshaya Tritiya is considered to be the birthdate of the Goddess Annapurna, the day is believed to be very auspicious for buying gold jewellery.
