By virtue of its stretchable size and tactile and durable quality, canvas is the best base to work on with oil and paints to express vividly the personality and character of the personage.

This idealized Malayalee woman playing the veena not only gives visual joy but also reveals the artists well developed powers of observation, precision and notation, spontaneity and intimacy with the theme. Thus beauty is cast as a regional feminine ideal. The image of the woman with the veena is ethnic and laden with signs of tradition in attire and accessories and assumes a more overtly iconic presence. The frontal stance and demean our is heavily posed. This lady with her whites, gold and veena would have become an abstracted symbol of chastity, culture and tradition, yet, by the semi-nude upper body, the artist has relayed the female body into the realm of voyeurism.

Her posture is posed but she refrains from looking into the viewer's eyes. Her hair pulled together and loosely knotted falls on her forehead. She sits in a casual manner with her hands poised to play the stringed instrument. She wears the ethnic jewellery typical by Kerala. The artist has played up the sensuality and fullness of the woman's body as well as the tactile gloss of her costume and jewellery. The painting in totality gives aesthetic satisfaction and visual joy.

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.
