Ikons are worshipped during special religious and cultural occasions such as child-birth, harvest, marriage and the construction of a new house. Ikons are not commissioned frequently and an existing one can be regularly used for ordinary rituals. The building of a new house however necessitates the commissioning of a Saura painting, which is painted in a dark corner inside the home where its creation is accompanied by the recital of a specific set of prayers. Today the Saura paintings have been succeeded by artists and paintings are often executed in non-traditional locales. Their diversity, detail and unique style have given saura paintings an 'in-vogue-appeal' and increasing popularity in recent years. The influence of markets and increasing awareness about the other’s forms have led to both Saura and Warli paintings picking up details of technique and style from the other. They have also been popularized in recent times as an avenue for skill and job creation and have increasingly been used to decorate items like greeting cards, stationery, decorative wall hangings and interiors.

These magnificent products are available in wide range starting from 200 to 900 (Indian Rupees), all of which is been delivered to the customer directly as well as with the help of an agent.
