This closely packed, richly bedecked band of female musicians is in a sense a paradigmatic image. The female forms are hovering between the sacred and the profane, the aristocratic and the middle-class, the foreign and the indigenous. It is a cross of several regional types of female bodies, dress and demeanor. Notwithstanding their physicality and seductive appeal, the sensuality of the female figures are contained by distinct markers of class and status.

This painting brings together, on one canvas, a tableau of eleven women, from different regions and communities of India, playing various musical instruments. Arranged like a group photograph, the painting offers a dazzling range from the Muslim courtesan on the right to the Nair lady playing the veena, on the left, including also the Parsi and the Anglo-Indian among the array of Tamil, Maratha and Rajput types. What first arrests the eye here are the rich colors, plushness and intricacy of the varieties of costume and ornaments. Then the eye moves to the glowing faces, to the play of inward-looking interlocking glances of the group of women that seal them off from the spectator's gaze and contain them with an imagined rarefied space of the 'nation.' The artist has conjured through his art a pan-Indian ethos, depicting the oriental and nationalist vision of India, resplendently traditional yet undeniably modern.

I’ve received the package 2 days ago. The painting is as beautiful as I whished! I’m very interesting in history, art and culture of India and I’m studing his civilization; so I’ve visited Rajasthan, Gujarat, Tamil Nadu and Kerala in theese years. I’m a draftwoman , so I like collect works of extraordinary arts and crafts of villages, that must be protected and helped. In a short time I’ll buy some others folk painting, as Madhubani , Kalamkari and – if it’s possible – Phad. In the meanwhile, I’m very happy to have in my home a work of your great artist. Namaste, Namaskara.
