Hey Dominique, thanks so much for reaching out. I emailed you at your email address. Let me know what makes more sense. Thanks!
Need to send you an extra tenner as I'm not USA. Tried several times but don't know how to go further on this one. Lemme know and I'll follow ...
Peace and cheese ...
IMPORTANT: BACKERS, FRIENDS AND FAMILY! We have in fact reached our Goal of 20,000 7 days earlier than we thought which is a beautiful feeling. All of us have done this together. I am humbled by the participation and response beyond words. So thank you a million times over. If you watched my video, you must know that this funding was to produce 4 more images. 4 more deity recreations will allow me to complete the FIRST HALF OF THE PROJECT.
In the last 7 days before the Kickstarter deadline comes to pass, we could really take this to a new level. If we can continue to let this funding grow, we can get even closer to completing the project. With August 28th being the last day, a week is all we have.
I encourage you to share with friends that the price point on these prints of Maa Laxmi and the smaller editions are available for kickstarter only. These sizes and prices will not be available after project completion, so please, if you feel compelled, continue to back Darshan so it can get closer to it's ultimate goal of completion.
Much love, Regards and Blessings ,
@Holly and @VisualBody Thanks so much!
congrats! goal reached and you still have a week to go!
Congratulations :) Your goal is reached !
Thanks so much Visual Body, I appreciate it!
Very very nice project :) I love Indian Deities. I love India and her culture. My 2 news tattoos is dedicated to Lord Shiva and Maa Saraswati so it's a good occasion to participate this project !

Vaibhav, special thanks for you for your suggestion. I am taking it very seriously and in deep research as we speak . Thanks and wish you the best.
Awesome concept! Thank you for taking a unique initiative to showcase our heritage to the world! Kudos, Manjari.
This is indeed a great project that you are undertaking. Good luck to you!
Great endeavor. it would be great to have a contemporary version of the pictures of deities I have seen in my parents' home.
I think traditional poses (what we frequently see) are fine, but better would be to take a significant moment and bring it to life. I would love if people want to know about the story behind the image than just the image. E.g. Maybe Hanuman trying to swallow the Sun, Saraswati taking Fire to the Sea, Vishnu at the churning of ocean of milk, Ganesha writing mahabharata with his own tusk. Just some suggestions!
Radha Krishnaji thanks so much for your generous backing. I would love to know what pose you had in mind? Do share your views here on this platform. Many thanks.
Erin, thanks so much for your enthusiasm. Your support is endearing and I can't wait to see this project come alive. Thanks a million times.
This is a truely inspiring project on so many levels. I keep checking back every day to see how close you are to your goal! I look forward to seeing your full series come to life :)
accept my best wishes for your project, very much interested in a 24x36 poster of shiva,
will get one if it is in a pose i'm looking for.
Great project. Inspiring stuff. Good luck with reaching the goal. :)
Thomas you are my friend, philosopher and guide!
Barry, thank you very much for the good wishes I need them more than anything. If I go beyond my goal it means I can shoot more than I plan to which can only be a good thing. Yes I was hoping Maa laxmi would bless this project into fruition! :)
Dear Pamela, thank you so much for your kind words and being such a great backer. It's people like you who will help make this project come alive. Many thanks sincerely.
great project. hope you can reach your financial goal...and beyond. wise choice to start with Maa Laxmi.
Beautiful concept, familial aspects are equally endearing. Enjoyed the video, your photography is stunning as is your attention to detail. Looking forward to the culmination of Darshan. Best Wishes!
You are brilliant and amazing, I love what you have taken on! You have an impeccable eye for re-imagining the worlds you are creating...and infusing them with pure joy. I cannot wait to see your new body of work come to life... Here's to your vision being fully realized now!
You are truly f*cking amazing and always and inspiration. Please keep up the great work. Best of luck to you with your new project.
Good luck, Manajri- I wish I could help more. Your work is an inspiration.
