If i was a musician, i could tell you more about the song that is initiated by this painting. Now, i can only say that it is a song of abandonment and joy, of floating and riding, of heat and animals; and of flowing water and sweeping breeze.
Mirza’s soft and firm strokes are perfect to communicate such a delicate theme, especially when the image itself is common throughout Punjab.
