Looks of an ideal aristocratic woman - noble, aloof and serious, yet sensual and delicate. hers can well be the face for the bards to wax eloquent down the ages. There is no taint of the voluptuous about her face and figure; it is the silent love of her heart expressing itself in the gleam of her eyes and the glow of her cheeks, tender, dignified and utterly lovely, that makes her so fascinating. A cleft in the chin and braided hair add to her innocent look.

What the viewer notices at first glance is the aristocratic milieu, dress and demeanor and the very attributes of a leisured way of life. She wears a tiara on the head, the back of which is covered by a scarf. She wears earrings, almost concealed behind the thick hair. Strings of pearls are twirled around her wrists. In the forearms are gold plate ornaments, typical of some particular tribes of Persia. Treatment of jewelry and clothes displays opulence and regality. The peacock blue shirt has lavish and rich embroidery in front and on sleeves. It is combined with a somber, mud brown skirt. But again, the scarlet sash around her waist negates the effort to any form of sobriety. The sash also has gold ribbon and pearls sewed at the ends in a paisley pattern. The artist has highlighted the costume and jewelry to such an extent, that they glitter brighter than the sitter they adorn.

Seated in a garden with full bloomed flowers surrounding her, she holds the lute in one hand and rose, a symbol of love, in the other. Close to her is a table with a sun face, that holds a fruit basket. The Persian beauty also rests her delicate arm on it.

The background is dull in order to let the bright colors of the central subject make the figure float to the surface. The gloss and evenness of the intense, glowing paints set against a vague, dark background, acquire a gem like appearance. The vivacity of the palette, the genius and untiring endeavor of the artist contribute to this amazing portrait.

Ketil, Norway
Thank you so much for shipping Ma Shitala.  She arrived safely today on Buddha Purnima.  We greeted Her with camphor and conch blowing, and she now is on Ma Kali’s altar.  She is very beautiful.  Thank you for packing Her so well. Jai Ma

Great site! Myriad of items across the cultural spectrum. Great search capability, too. If it's Indian, you'll probably find it here.
Mike, USA
I was very happy to find these great Hindu texts of the ancient times. Been a fan of both Mahabhratham and Ramayanam since I was a small boy. Now the whole family can enjoy these very important cultural texts at home.
