Makara - Makara

Krishna is described as wearing Makara earrings. Ever wondered what a Makara looks like? Its not a crocodile, nor a whale......

Wow. Am I wrong if I assume that you are the artist? I recall seeing some illustrations in Vilap Kusumanjali.

Nope, I'm not the artist. Some of the illustrations in Vilapa Kusumanjali were hand drawn by me but this one is from the world wide web. Can't remember the site's address unfortunately. If you zoom it is amazing
. Looks like a caterpillar, worm, elephant (the head) and a fish all rolled in one! And then, just fancy that it is a huge aquatic! How would you feel if you encountered it while swimming at the beach? Actually about 10 years ago a friend of mine sent me a pic he found in a book somewhere of its head; it was just like this one, an elephant's head.

I suppose I would stand no chance in water, but I am not quite certain whether I'd be safe on the shore either.

Found the pic that my friend Madanmohan sent me as a drawing some 6 years ago. It clearly confirms the elephant head...
