The setting for this oil painting is within the four walls of a traditional Indian household, with salmon pink and brown walls, decorated with ethnic patterns and a portrait of a grown man, probably the patriarch of the house. Under his authoritative gaze sit three women, young and as delicate as the flowers placed in a golden vase in the corner of the room.

Anup Gomay has draped the subjects of this oil painting with effervescent clothes- silken lehenga (skirt), choli (blouse) and dupatta (scarf), all of it embellished with gold Zari embroidery that shines distinctively. The faces of the young ladies in the oil painting are lovely, their eyes beautified with kohl and an elegant pink tint on the lips. Restful, they are seated on a deep red hued carpet, with cups and surahi (vessel) of glistening gold placed near them, full of sweet and cooling sherbet.

In the comfort of their home, the three damsels are engrossed in the board game positioned between them. With their henna tainted palms, they roll the cowries used as dices in the game. There is a custom to place a bet on a game of Chaupar in India. We know nothing about what is betted in the game played by these three damsels, all we know is that this oil painting of women playing Chaupar will aesthetically enrich your space. We can bet on that!
