Detailed Product Description
The Rajasthani gypsy woman swaying in gay abandon to the lively Dandiya dance captures the eye of the beholder in this vibrant canvas. The energy and vivacity that is Rajasthan is picturised through the countenance of the dancer as well as the colors and the fast paced movements. The vigorous rhythm and the brilliant plumage of colours that are the trademark of the Dandiya seem to overshadow the deep melancholy of the harsh, unforgiving desert. The dance is an expression of the deep passion of these hardworking desert dwellers, a burst of life and happiness amidst bleak, colorless sands stretching as far as the eye can see. This painting eliminates the landscape, focusing instead on the gypsy woman, thus mirroring the way the bleak desert is overshadowed by the stunningly graceful movements of the dancers and the flare of brightly hued costumes. Even after a hard days toil in the scorching sands, the smiling face of the dancer shows no weariness, but glows with the joy of life and the anticipation of a new day. The use of bright colours and the gracefully dynamic movements depicted in the painting convey a zest for life undaunted by the difficult lifestyle that the cruel terrain demands.
