A persistent theme in the artistic history of India is the sensuous female figure, often provocatively poised. Sensuality and sexuality are both relayed through glance, gaze and posture and into the realm of voyeurism.

The image of women bathing in the moonlight is charged with suggestions of eroticism. Narrow of waist and erect of bearing, she wears a choli or a bodice that barely contains her breasts. A long narrow fabric makes the pretence of covering her lower body too. Her body posture is seductive and going by the smile on her face, is intentional. A flowering tree behind her forms a canopy over her, the flowers in soft pink unable to match her beauty. The moon shines and the beams lend a silver glow to the river, making it look unreal and fantastic. Two swans swim at leisure in the distance. A single swan in the foreground symbolizes the lonely status of the woman, for whom her own sensuality and youth is difficult to handle.

The brilliant colours of the woman's attire stand jarringly against the mystified moonlight background.

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.
