Why was Jimi Hendrix disappointed with the cover art for his album "Axis Bold as Love"?

Because it showed Britain's current fad for all things Indian to create the cover and thus the album's cover has a photographed copy of a mass produced religious poster of the Hindu devotional painting known as Viraat Purushan-Vishnuroopam with a small, superimposed painting of the group by Roger Law (from a photo portrait by Karl Ferris) blended in.
Jimi Hendrix said it would be more appropriate to showcase his American "Indian" heritage.
