During the decade of the 1920s Gaganendranath became interested in the cubist experiments being practiced by contemporary Western modern artists and developed an unconventional vision of Cubism that was his own.
In the present work, the artist utilizes a delicate palette of diffused blue-gray and white tones applied in a prismatic, Cubist manner to create a deeply moving and personalized rendition of this spiritual subject.
