The dignity and charm of the human form find its exquisite expression in this painting. The medium is oil colors and manner and method of work realistic to the core. It displays the link between the old style of Indian art and the Revival style.

A correct understanding of anatomy and beauty is evident in this portrait of a Malyalee woman wearing a 'mundu' kind of garment, white in color with a simple border. It is a derivation of the saree, starting from beneath the arms and ending calf length; shoulders normally remaining bare. She is a robust, full-grown sensuous woman. Her frontal glance and demeanor is heavily posed. The way she holds the kerchief in one hand and wraps the other around herself shows her discomfiture while posing. Ethnic and laden with signs of tradition in attire and accessories, she looks simple and beautiful. She wears exquisite neck jewelry, ear-studs which are round and big and a nose stud, the pearl of which drops to her lips. Heavy ornamented gold and that studded with gemstones are depicted with as loving care as she wears them with. On around plump face are simple eyes, straight nose, full lips and a rounded chin. The features are not idealized - they have a serene majesty which imbues her with a gentle iconic character.

The naturalistic rendering of the face, anatomy, color etc., has been fully balanced. The lines are spontaneous and precise, the hand has indeed obeyed the commands of the artist's vision and feeling. In a calm, unobtrusive way, it allows for the mellow, pensive refinement of the subject to come through, inherently bound with delicate sensuality and natural dignity.

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.
