Material potential of oil paints provide a magical simulation of real life appearances. Depth, shadow, perspective, all offer a way of pictorially apprehending the real. This theme from Sanskrit literature is a lyrical and romantic one. With literary ingredient before him, the artist has used his visual imagery in conceiving this composition. Evident is careful rendering of not only the woman, but her costume and mannerism as well.

A tribal woman with shapely eyes, straight nose and full lips is kneeling down, in the process of taking out an arrow from her quiver. Her short, tight bodice reveals a curvaceous figure and the jewelry that she adorns enhances her beauty. The artist has thus played up the sensuality and fullness of the woman's body as well as the tactile gloss of her costume and jewelry. The woman's grip on the crude make-shift bow is steady and the eyes in full concentration on the unfortunate prey. The bend of her feet is extremely realistic. The poised hand placed on the arrow lends movement to the composition. In fact, the image stands like a still from a motion film.

The whole picture has charm and dignity. The color ensemble is rich, harmonious and attractive. The execution is crisp and captivating. The painting truly has the potential to affect the viewer subliminally.

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.
