Vijayapura: Paying homage to prominent Seer, Late Siddeshwara, noted artist Tukaram Benur has drawn a 15×12 feet large painting of the Seer using around 60 kilograms of rice.

Benur and his team, which is known for preparing art using Rangoli, have used rice to prepare a big portrait of the Seer at the Mahadevappa Temple of the City.

The artists said that they wanted to pay respect to the prominent Seer who recently died at his Gyanayogashrama at the age of 82 after facing age-related complications.

“We have immense respect for Siddeshwara Swamy who we considered a saint. He lived a selfless life and preached only simplicity and harmony. With his knowledge, he tried to enlighten countless people through his sermons. We wanted to pay homage to such a saint as artists, and therefore, we decided to prepare his portrait using rice and natural colours,” he said.

Hundreds of people are already visiting the temple to see the portrait of the seer made up of rice.
