Neo-classical Sanskrit poetry influenced tradition and art in equal measure. Oil based colours on canvas are used to portray it to the best advantage.

In depicting a scene from 'Shakuntala', the artist prefers the broad hipped, full blossomed figures to narrate the tale. Shakuntala, daughter of a rishi, awaits her beloved Dushyanta, who promised to return and marry her. Pining for him, she asks her 'sakhis' to write to him, telling him about Shakuntala's woes. The friends write on the lotus leaf with a stem, all that she pours from the heart.

The women are broad, modeled on the lines of Ajanta beauties. The artist has rendered the faces and the bodies, colours and scenes with lyricism and expressive eloquence, required of the classic themes. Since the background is dense foliage, it is painted in various shades of green. Despite the density, the sunlight manages to peep from the upper right side. The artist sticks to the toned down shades all through, maintaining chromatic synchrony. He seems to handle oil paints with a transparency, fluency, softness and thinness usually associated with water colours.

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.
