little india

ghee happy is the website of an animator over at pixar. he’s illustrated a book for kids about hinduism that is extra cute. the site even says so. i like his animation style – particularly the wee vishnu that greets visitors on the home page. i am, however, a bit amused (or…relieved? whatever.) at the lack of giant phalluses in any of the gods’ portraits, wherein they are depicted with the items they are associated. although – he didn’t wimp out and give kali a daisy or something; she has a skirt of severed arms and a corpse’s head in one of her hands. …but they are CUTE severed body parts.
