The quest for the beautiful is the true function of art. Art expresses beauty, the limit of which is not just visual but penetrates and exploits the mental and spiritual spheres.

The woman depicted here is cast as regional, national and feminine ideals. Her saree, tucked under her arms, leaves her shoulder and arms free for movement. She uses those delicate limbs to adorn her hair with flowers lying in a heap on her lap. The features don't speak much for regional segregation but the hair style gives away the beauty and grace of the woman of Kerala. The jewellery she wears goes hand in hand with the simplicity of expression and attire. The sight and smell of fresh flowers is quite heady as she puts them in her hair do. A mirror and a container of perfume rest on the side table, discarded after use.

The carpet, the sofa and the pillar in the background says a lot for household of the woman portrayed. To add to that, the artist, with deft strokes of his brush, affects the thickness of the drapes, the richness of the cushion and the simplicity of her dress.

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.
