Poetry and art can express beauty in a way no other means can. In poetry, the limit is bound within words but in art, the limit is not just visual, but explores the mental and spiritual depths.

The medium of oil helps in intensifying the beauty of the female form. In India, during the monsoons, there are numerous swings hanging from sturdy trees. Women sing and swing at the same time heralding a season of joy and celebration. This lady on the swing belongs to the above genre but is seen in isolation by the artist. The woman with attractive features looks ahead with dreams in her eyes. Her long tresses are thrown back by the breeze. Her well-endowed figure is elegantly covered with a saree attractive because of its simplicity. The colours used for it enhance its sobriety. Any other kind of ornaments, but the ones she wears, would have looked out of place. The flowing ends of the saree lend movement to the painting.

In sharp contrast, the background is completely static - the rocks, the sky and the tree, looking aesthetically beautiful. The technical dexterity that makes the protagonist stand out, is sadly lacking in the background.

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.
