Hindu mythology and literature are witnesses to the fact that a woman has always held the fort with her wisdom, compassion and sacrifice. That she is also the epitome of grace and elegance is a bonus. The artists down the ages, seem to have taken great delight in exploring the beauty of the feminine form.

The setting sun has set the sky on fire before bidding adieu. The orange sky displays the residue of the heat and energy of the ball of fire, spreading beauty in the process. She sits on the boulder, oblivious to the changing nature. She has crossed the threshold of sprightly youth. A string of black beads in the neck and vermillion in the parting of the hair bear testimony to her married status. The absence of her partner can be the only cause of her lonely look. Well dressed and finely ornamented, she must have left the house on pretext of filling water in the pot that lies abandoned next to her. There is no grief in her eyes as she stares into the distance, just loneliness. The fact though glowing has a wistful expression; the lips don't smile. The wind blows her hair out of place, but she couldn't care less.

The artist employs an elaborate visual rhetoric to dramatize the superior beauty and charm of his heroine and successfully does so.
