A dazzling Indian Folk Art Painting of a Sun Face
A comical Indian folk art painting of a face with radiating wiggly white lines on a red background.
From time to time I really don't know what to say. The face is round and comical. A wide yellow nose has an orange shape between two black eyeballs. Perhaps the scale like drawing on the upper half of the face suggests fish scales separated from the lower half of the face by delicate fins. The whole round face has wavy white lines radiating over a red background.
Possibly from the Mithila painting tradition.
Nothing I write does justice to the comical and puzzling effect. Stunning!
