Indian Art is proof of the power of the visual and the value of visual perception in the appreciation of art. The eyes and the emotions are of primary importance, other factors follow in their wake.

Meditation and spiritualism seems to have influenced the artists choice of subject. Sadhus and yogis, because of their distinctive look and attitude have often caught the attention of artistes at all times. Oil on canvas, in any case, is adopted from the west. Add to that Rembrandt's technique of chiaroscuro; an Indian theme and lo and behold! We have a masterpiece. The most outstanding feature of this painting is the treatment of light and shade. The artist has used deep variations and subtle gradation of light and shade, enhancing the delineation of character.

Figurative realism finds favour here. The yogi's stare into space attracts the viewer more than a direct look. The rugged physique, the sun darkened body and rough, callous face combine with the entangled hair, graying in the sun to give him a look of belonging to another world. The light is directional: falling from the right, causing the man to flinch. He does not carry any mark on his forehead, and wears rudraksha beads in the neck. The brooding expression and the piercing gaze is sure to hound the viewer for long.

The background consists of various hues of cool colours.

This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
