The Warrior's Lover In The Throes Of Passion
In the dead of night, she rises sleepless and inches towards his sword. She brings it back to bed with her, unable to contain herself in his absence. He is away at battle, while his lover pines from her concern for his well-being and the separation at having to let him go. The painting you see on this page is a sensuous portrayal of the lover's essay to substitute one of his swords with the warrior's presence. She presses the cold metal of the weapon against her torso and shuts her gorgeous eyes, probably like she would have responded to similar proximity with him. The gold of the ornate hilt matches the ample gold that glitter against the marble skin of her naked back.
The dynamicism of the painting comes out in the bangles on her wrists, the bejewelled streams of gold on her tresses, and the purple silk draped around her curvaceous hip that matches the makeup on those eyes. One could almost listen to the rustling of the silk and the tinkling of her shringar as she motions against the piercing edge of the sword. She is an exceptionally beautiful woman with full, expressive features, and a head of luxuriant hair as black as a tropical night. Note the background infusions of rich red colour, which serve to convey the passion that has seized the lady in the foreground.
