The artist does not feel the need for technique or medium to express
himself. Using just a lead pencil, he is able to portray the depth of beauty
an emotion. On her way to the temple to pay obeisance to the deity, she is
all dressed and adorned. The artist has depicted her having a voluptuous
figure with delicate limbs. The treatment of the hand and fingers is
extraordinary. Her features are true to the canons of beauty and aesthetics.
The bow shaped eyebrow has a lotus shaped eye below. The straight nose gives
way to a full mouth and a rounded chin. Most part of her forehead is covered
by a huge 'tikka'. Her long hair is curling around her face and upper body
in an untamed manner.
In her delicate hands, she holds the things required for a ritualistic
prayer. Unflinching, she holds a burning diya, the flame of which reaches
high. In the other hand she holds a tray replete with a 'purna kumbh', the
auspicious water pot, coconut, fruit and beetle leaves. The pot is topped by
a full bloomed lotus flower. She also balances a garland of flowers to offer
to the deity.
Unquivering draughtsman ship and judicious shading are the highpoints of
this amazing drawing.
