It is mentioned that Lord Vishnu transformed himself into a fish (Matsya) to save the world from the great flood. It was Vishnu in the form of fish who guided Manu’s grand ship towards mountains in midst of great flood. Matsyavtar is one of the Dashavtara of Lord Vishnu. The painting is made on hand-made paper, hot-pressed and framed for longevity.
