The Virgin Maiden

Rs.11,700 Inc. Tax

This portrait is emblematic of the innocence that young age brings with it. White is the color of peace, purity and virginity. This color dominates the portrait of the young maiden keeping in tune with the mood of the picture. The gaze of the maiden has dropped downwards. It shyly averts the gaze of the spectator. The white flower on her hair, spreading out in a casual manner in all directions, also signifies her youth and playfulness. However, there is a subtle hint of the sensuous in the manner in which she carries herself. She is caught in a poise with her hand raised slightly up, bringing it down to her hair. This self-conscious yet unknowing gesture towards her hair gives a hint towards a growing understanding of her own sexuality during the blooming years of adolescence. It is a reawakening of the feminine principles towards the body and the physicality. The gesture is caught between a sense of innocent ignorance and growing identification with this self. This balance is caught subtly yet perfectly in the painting. The entire background has been blurred in a monotone in order to retain focus at this point, making it a work that attains absolute perfection.
