The painting reflects the style of realistic genre painters of Holland, pre Renaissance. The form and colours are reminiscent of the European influence and inspiration.

A forlorn looking waif, clutching a stray puppy and an urn in one hand, walks on. Her search for water does not seem to have yielded results and maybe the reason for her despair. The poverty stricken look that the painter strives to give is sadly missing – the face is childishly chubby and the patches on the clothes look superficial. The shading on the face lends more volume to the already rounded face. But he manages to evoke pure emotion and feeling – that of childhood and innocence in the child and a curiously haunting feeling all over.

Barring the little girl, all else do not possess a distinct line. The colours in the background merge, forming the earth, trees and skies. The artists' bend towards impressionism is quite evident here. The cloud-swept sky seems threatening and the green trees provide little relief.

The protagonist and the backdrop, by virtue of style, is not in harmony. The painting in totality speaks the language of colour, light and form.

Tina, USA
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.
