SHIVA AND PARVATI DESCEND THE STEEP HILLS OF MOUNT KAILASA
- SHIVA AND PARVATI DESCEND THE STEEP HILLS OF MOUNT KAILASA
- Opaque watercolor heightened with gold on paper
An imaginative version depicting the descent of the Holy Family through a landscape of schematic hillsides tinged green with light application of reddish-brown lateral brushstrokes - hilltops capped by lines of small trees. The largest trees counter-intuitively lining the farther hills in the upper register of the miniature.
