Material potential of oil paints provide a magical simulation of real life appearances. Depth, shadow, perspective, all offer a way of pictorially apprehending the real. This theme from Sanskrit literature is a lyrical and romantic one. With literary ingredient before him, the artist has used his visual imagery in conceiving this composition. Evident is careful rendering of not only the woman, but her costume and mannerism as well.

A tribal woman with shapely eyes, straight nose and full lips is kneeling down, in the process of taking out an arrow from her quiver. Her short, tight bodice reveals a curvaceous figure and the jewelry that she adorns enhances her beauty. The artist has thus played up the sensuality and fullness of the woman's body as well as the tactile gloss of her costume and jewelry. The woman's grip on the crude make-shift bow is steady and the eyes in full concentration on the unfortunate prey. The bend of her feet is extremely realistic. The poised hand placed on the arrow lends movement to the composition. In fact, the image stands like a still from a motion film.

The whole picture has charm and dignity. The color ensemble is rich, harmonious and attractive. The execution is crisp and captivating. The painting truly has the potential to affect the viewer subliminally.
