WOMAN DOING FACIAL MAKE-UP


A beautiful statue of a woman found in Sri Rangam Temple
in South India.

The statue has been chiselled out with all aesthetic sense as one can see how the woman beautifies her face with Thilak ( a sacred mark on the fore-head with kum kum a safron paste/powder) with one hand simultaneously holding in the other hand a mirror to view how the Thilak is applied.

See, how nicely the sculptor (the viswakarma Shilbi)
has brought out in stone, the ornaments wearing on her waist,hand,chest,

Equally the drapery hanging from the shoulder shows the
design work in the cloth.

The treasures of beautiful statues are seen in many temples in India.

Inspired by the human architecture left to the world by our fore-fathers I drew this picture with millions of dots emanating to shades and light.
