“The Dedication of Jesus” by Satheesan A K.

I found it at Fine Art America where it says, “This painting is done in the traditional mural art style of Kerala, India. This style of art is normally done on the walls of temples and churches and depicts stories. The artist, Satheesan A. K., has worked on the walls of temples in Kerala for several years. In 2008 Satya Global Arts commissioned 10 canvas paintings on the life of Christ. This painting shows Mary bringing Jesus to the temple for dedication. Simeon is holding Jesus, with the Anna is in the background.”

You can buy some of his art here and browse Indian art by other artists in my online collection of Asian Christian art.
