The simple colour palette complements the organic medium of this Khajuraho-style composition. Green and red and the occasional bit of ochre, in cool pastel tones. The base colour is a deep brown that is washed out in places, and is to be found on the woman’s skin as well as on the pedestal upon which she dances. The same is superimposed with colourful shringar on her person and luxuriant vines on the surface of the aureole. A row of similarly gorgeously coloured lotus petals is to be found on the ornate pedestal beneath the feet of the nymph.
The thick superimposing aureole, as seductive as she is. Curvaceous green vines, budding flowers in bunches dangling therefrom, and hints of mythical paisley-shaped fruit. Such a murti housed in your space would make a statement of fullness and fecundity, of colour and texture, and of the ancient and the artistic.
