Erotica has been part of early Indian literature and art. Taking a leaf from tradition. craftsmen often create aesthetically erotic works. A seated couple enjoy close proximity without indulging in any somatic activity. The man is seated cross-legged, with his arms going around the woman he desires. He wears a crown and other jewellery giving proof of his regal lineage. The woman dressed like a princess, wears a smaller crown and exquisite jewellery. Large bosom, thin waist and delicate limbs describe her. The features of both are long, shapely eyes, straight sharp nose and pouting lips that make them look sensuous and attractive.
The artist has portrayed the element of passion by the sheer posture of the two. Too many colours would have marred the effect, acting as catalyst. The subtle hues juxtaposed with the darker ones achieve the desired effect.
