This middle aged woman is clad in loose
pleated pure white silk sari with the pallu that covers her head, picturing her
as being a conformist of her traditions and that light green contrasting blouse
that allows us to have an idea of her simplicity and sober taste.
this beautiful lighted lamp of a three layered circular base that decreases in
size as it ascends; by protecting the flame of the lamp she is remembering her
husband who is no more in this world and this bright flame comforts her inner
self that her husband’s soul rests in peace. The tender red watery eyes that
look up to the one up in heaven and that painful smile depicts her excruciating
loss that she is sharing with god through her emotions and acts.
chain and silver earrings represent her fondness of these small trinkets, but
it seems she doesn’t have anymore other than these mismatched ones. Painter has
very skillfully painted his thoughts in extensive realism by focusing even on
the shadowy background of the lady and minor light flashes on her arms and sari
caused due to the lamp that spreads its light only in three directions as one
is covered by her hand.
