In times when the personages and events of the Puranas and other epics are subjected to a detraction of the extreme kind, the personification of cosmic powers and the stories connected with them are painted by the illuminated imagination of the artist.
This striking scene, intriguing situation of the descent of Ganga, personality of the Hindu epics, is recorded on canvas with unerring skill. In this mythological painting, the life-like woman representing Ganga, with all her physical seductive appeal is metamorphosed into feminine ideals and a classical icon. She stands naked to the waist, her head in profile. The plaint figure harmonized like a phrase in the grand symphony of the fluid waves. The sensuality and fullness of the woman's body, has a subtle erotic flavor. Her figure and posture stimulates a classical 'Venus.' She wears her sari uncharacteristically, baring her breast like a neo-classical drape. The smooth rippling edge of the sari is painted in an appealing manner. The face is sweet and shyly sensual, what with her soft smile and downcast eyes.
The viewer is invariably drawn towards the exquisitely painted areas, be it the jewelry, drapery, delicate finger tips or graceful facial expressions. The scenic setting is specially theatrical and spectacular in tune with the mythical episode. The combination of bright and subdued oil colors serve to capture the gloss and illusionism of oil painting. The line and brush strokes display mastery over form and proportion. The realistic depiction makes the viewer feel that Ganga is about to descend on earth.
