The Pensive Lady

The Pensive Lady

This painting is of a young lady steeped deep in thought. She is possibly of royal stock, given the sheer amount of silks and golds on her person. Despite the luxury of her chamber - the richly done swing, the the sumptuous background - she is the very picture of dejection, the cause of which remains unrevealed. This oil from the Exotic India collection will add a veil of the sombre and the grave to your interiors.

This luxuriant oil from the Exotic India collection is layered with visual tonalities that are bound to engage all who gaze upon it. A pensive, almost sombre lady rests on the palace swing, her troubled gaze directed ahead of her but at nothing in particular. Her attire betrays both her wealth and her youth - warm orange saree teamed with a delicate pink blouse, brocaded and woven with studded gold booties. The swing in her chamber is just spacious enough to accommodate her petite frame. It is cushioned with luxurious green velvet and brocade, the bolster she rests her arm on in a matching dusky blue and gold. Thick brass chains, punctuated by ornate motifs, hold the swing in place.

On the contrary, the background is decidedly Stygian. An imposing red curtain looms over the darkness, while a dull unlit pillar dominates the other half of the backdrop. An unsettling pitch-black shadow lies beyond the pillar and the curtain. The blackness matches the stance of the lady in the foreground. Her partially revealed countenance bears a composure of discomfiture. The angle of her gold jhumka reveals that she is about to turn her lovely face away. Her lashes are long, the tips of which almost touch her roseate cheek. A miniscule bindi, as becomes a pre-bridal beauty, sets off the tender arch of her brow. Her nosering is heavy, just like the maangtika that covers the entire length of her flawless temple. The jet-black wisps that frame her young face emerge from a luscious mane that has been parted, where rests the gold maangtika, and braided down the length of her spine all the way down to her hips. Her superbly thick braid is held in place by streams of gold, the emeralds on the tasselled headpieces the same as the one tying the ends of her tresses together.

Her limbs are long and gracious. The floweret on her gold amulet looks great against the florals on the brocade of her blouse. A single gold bangle, thick in terms of proportion, graces her exquisite wrist. In her hand - and this is the most unusual detail present in the painting - she holds a peacock feather that serves as her fan. Its brilliant blue centre is rimmed with the gracious gold colour found in minute quantities in nature. The green of the rest of the feather has a sheen that rivals the glimmer of the emerald on her finger. The stance of her lower limbs is no different - with one feet going over the other and touching the floor beneath the swing, her entire body is wrought with an unspoken anxiety. Note the plethora of jewels studded in the gold of her heavy anklets, which look like they would fall off her tender feet as she walked.

Testimonials
I received my Manjushri statue today and I can't put in words how delighted I am with it! Thank you very much. It didn't take very long to get here (the UK) - I wasn't expecting it for a few more weeks. Your support team is very good at providing customer service, too. I must conclude that you have an excellent company.
Mark, UK.
A very comprehensive site for a company with a good reputation.

I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.

I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
Steven, USA
