Unknown Artist : “The Heroine Who Waits Anxiously for Her Absent Lover (Utka Nayika)” (c. 1760-1765)

Archival Inkjet on Matte Finish Fine Art Paper

The Ibis’s giclée process uses archival pigment inks on 100% cotton rag paper to achieve crisp detail and rich, lasting color. Unlike posters, they will not yellow with time, but will maintain their original quality for as long as you own them. If you are unhappy with your print for any reason, you are welcome to return it for a full refund.

In the hilly and verdant landscape all around her, birds and animals are all in pairs — even many of the trees have doubles — but she remains alone, waiting on a bed of leaves for her lover to arrive. She has no way of knowing when he will come, like the devotee has no way to know when god will arrive and bring salvation and bliss.
