Oil on paper (22" x 15")
This is a painting of an old Indian man headed towards the fiver Ganga for his morning ablutions and prayers. For those who dont know, Ganga holds a special place in the Hindu system. It is supposed to have the ability to cleanse everyone of his sins and curses. A small jar containing Ganga jal (water of ganga) can e found in each and every household in India. Coming back to the painting, I tried to do it with bold brush strokes. I am not particularly satisfied with the background. There are many confusing colour passages in there.
