Two ladies, one in profile and the other in full view dominate the composition. The one in profile is bashful having turned her head on seeing something which causes her to see red. In all probability she has come here to this lonely spot, accompanied by her sakhi (female friend) to meet her lover. The sakhi does not share her affection for the lover, consequently she does not experience the same attack of modesty. The pitcher at the bottom suggests that they have come to this rendezvous by giving a false pretext at home. Often in medieval times the only occasion when women left their homes were for the purpose of fetching water from the well or the river. Hence this errand provided a perfect opportunity for any activity on the sly.

The finest achievement of the artist lies in the manner the natural curvaceousness of the two female figures blends harmoniously with the stylized elongation of their forms. Conforming to the highest ideals of Indian classical thought they both have hour-glass figures, endowed with ample bosoms, slender waists, and wide hips, the nearest the feminine body can approach to perfection.

Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
Bernd, Spain
