The ancient text Natyashastra elaborates on various nayikas (heroine) classified according to their situation in love. Love is classified into two categories viz. love in separation (viyog) and love in union (samyog).

The artist has portrayed the virahini nayika; she who is separated from her lover, suffering from anxiety and love longings. With vacuous eyes, she looks beyond the viewer. She sees no reason to dress in attention – seeking diaphanous clothes or ostentatious jewellery. Dressed in a simple rust-orange attire that covers her head as well and simple jewellery, she yearns for her lover; the anxious eyes, the smile-less lips, the pallor all speak of her grief. Learning on the door, she hopefully looks at the track; a miracle might happen and her lover might return.

To underplay the situation of 'viraha' and 'viyog', the artist dresses up the nayika in bright clothes but does not use restraint while portraying emotion on her face. Her sadness reaches out to the viewer.

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.
