Annapoorna Devi or Annapoorneshwari is considered to be an avatar of goddess Parvati, wife of Lord Shiva. It is said that a long time ago, Devi Parvati was offended by Lord Shiva's remark that "everything materialistic including food is Maya". To prove the importance of sustenance, the Goddess disappeared from the world and as a result, nature came to a standstill. However, she could not see the plight of her devotees and reappeared in Kashi. Lord Shiva, realising his mistake, rushed to her and begged for alms. This Kerala Mural depicts goddess Annapoorna in her resplendent glory after returning to Kashi, serving food to her devotees. This painting can be an excellent adornment to the abundance that flows through your dining room.
