FONAMAHA by archanN FONAMAHA by archanN
:iconsaltyshadow: VS :iconarchann:

This artwork is not only a fusion of our styles, but also a fusion of our deep rooted traditions, values, and cultures of our country. it is a reflection of our surrounding, of what we preach, of what we have.

both countries, China (homecountry of =saltyshadow) and India ( from where I am ) are very traditional and rich cultural countries. you will see here a fusion of elements from the way they approach to god, and the way we do, making it more beautiful and also spreading a message, that no matter where in the world we are , our god, blood, religion, faith and culture all are equal.

I really had lots of fun working with =saltyshadow , great experience and she is extremely lovely :heart:

Daily Deviation

Given 2007-06-22
FONAMAHA by =archanN and *saltyshadow is not only a creative modern and fresh looking mix of traditional Indian and Chinese arts. The balanced composition with its rich flow of elements from both cultures also promotes the message of equality across different cultures, religions and politics.

You can also purchase this artwork as a print to spread good spirits in your home! ( Featured by Thunderstatement )

The funny thing is, this looks a lot like Southeast Asian art--which basically is a fusion of Chinese & Indian. I had a great time finding all the little cultural elements amidst the bright colors and smooth lines. :)

Are you bilingual or multi? Hindi? Bengali?

hindi and malyali. but malyalam not so good ;)

xXDiAbLoXx Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2007  Hobbyist Artist
So Malyali and Malyalam use the same script? Malayalam looks hard to pronounce. :P

Then Malyali might be your regional language, no? While Hindi is universal in India.

:iconarchann:
archanN Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2007  Professional Digital Artist
malyali is like we call the keralites here coz their language is malyalam. malyalam is the language. its pronounced as MAL-YAA-LAM

malyalam is the regional language of kerala :D

xXDiAbLoXx Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2007  Hobbyist Artist
Technically you must be a different ethnicity then. I mean you must be smart if you can already speak three languages. Hindi from what I heard isn't truly alphabetical, I don't know much about Malyalam. So yeah you seem to be of different ethnic stock. I'm learning Portuguese, it might help if I decide to visit western India, if they still speak Portuguese at all. :0

What's more spoken Hindi or English? English is like the older unifying language, etc.
