Oil colors on canvas provide the artist with a wide scope for experimentation. Primarily bright colors serve to capture the gloss and illusionism of oil painting. In this painting, the artist seduces the viewer with color so ravishing that the strong pull it exerts on the senses makes analysis of the content difficult and elusive.

Posing here is a Persian aristocratic female - noble and aloof. Ethnic and laden with signs of tradition in attire and accessories she stands in a stiff pose. Wrapped in yards of colorful fabric that is not only colorful but unique in style. The upper garment is a front open coat with full sleeves. the lower garment is a multi-layered, unusual skirt. Around the shoulders is a 'chadar' or a shawl that further conceals her contours. The head-dress that she wears is elaborate and interesting. This, together with clothes display opulence and regality.

The woman has idealized features, yet the face is strangely impersonal. One cannot deny the delicate sensuality and natural dignity that she possesses. The painting is quite complex at the level of interaction of painterly and scholarly construct.

The foreground consists of chequered tiles, the black and white of which offsets the otherwise bright palette. The drapery in the background is ostentatious, balanced by the dull colors of the pillar. The gloss and evenness of the intense glowing paints against the vague, dark background is quite entrancing. In an almost unobtrusive way, the pensive refinement of the subject comes through, drawing you, inviting you, and enthralling you.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
