When the fury of the Almighty is unleashed, all one can hope for is mercy.

Noah and his wife Na’mah are the ones chosen to sustain life on the planet.

Set sail on this stormy journey through crests and troughs to see how they brave the odds that are stacked against them.

This Indian rendition of the famous flood narrative in the Book of Genesis – The Noah’s Ark – has been depicted using the narrative style of Patua scroll art from West Bengal which beautifully encapsulates both the wrath and the magnanimity of the divine.
