Giampaolo Tomassetti, an Italian painter, was so fascinated by the Indian mythological epic Mahabharat that he studied it thoroughly for 5 years and then painted breathtaking pictures of it. 

Tomassetti was also a member of International Vedic Art Academy in Villa Vrindavan, Italy, for about 7 years. 

It took him 12 years to paint some of the most iconic scenes from the legendary epic.
