A woman's creation of another woman as a subject indeed provides an exceptional opportunity to pay greater attention to not only the role of images of women, but also about women’s literacy, lack of education and cultural glorification or isolation in the society. The depiction of a graceful elongated pensive figure of rural woman painted in a single profound color is an attempt to illustrate B Prabha, a major Indian artist's style of decorative figuration. This exquisite piece belongs to a series of illustrative portraitures of phenomenal women artists.
This reimagination includes other elements like a bird, flowers and giant leaves in a blue backdrop, paying importance to another role of engaging viewers and audience in the production of meaning. It attempts to capture Prabha's celebration of femininity.
