Replicating the painting from the Ajanta caves, this figure displays a delicate sense of modeling and is an excellent specimen of female beauty conceived by the artist. Full of sensuality, she has heavy hips, a slender waist and a full bust, conforming to the traditional standard of beauty. The artist has captured the graceful pose in profile. She holds a slab / slate in her hand, giving words to her feelings with a stylus. The bent of her head, the direction of her glance, the concentration of the hands show the importance of what she writes. The physical charm is enhanced by the ornaments she wears.
This batik work is a fine example of the artistic interplay between the bright and the toned down colours. Such contrast is resorted to for giving a silhouettish effect so that the figure would stand out. And the play between the ocher and the rose pink truly make it outstanding.
