Women 4 - raja Ravi Varma's Classic Painting Of ‘hamsa-Damayanti'

Rating: 5.0
A classic painting of the beautiful princess ‘Damayanti'
Attractive art work, in conversation with the swan -‘Hamsa',
Takes you on a flight with golden wings of imagination,
To an exotic destination of amour, intrigue and love affair!

When the distant hearts are aflame with passionate love,
When the sensitive hearts are afloat with intense love,
Contemplating sweet smiles of tender love that flow with
Charming words, messages, whisperings of love!

An iconic painting that has won the hearts of connoisseurs,
An immortal love story of royal sweet hearts and a swan,
Handsome Prince Nala and the beautiful Princess Damayanti,
Heavenly white swan -the sweet messenger of love epistles.

Ageless art that crosses the margin of boundaries and limitations,
Artistic expression that mesmerises with timeless, ethereal romance!

Topic(s) of this poem: women,art,artistic work,love and art
This poem is based on the famed Painting of' ‘Hamsa Damayanti' in my Series on ‘ Women' of Raja Ravi Varma Paintings. Raja Ravi Varma (29 April 1848 -2nd October 1906) is a celebrated Indian Artist. He remains my favourite artiste amongst Indian Painters both from the ancient and modern era. His portrait of women and art of Kerala are outstanding and have been applauded by the whole world. Here is a special tribute to this great Painter on this day of Women's International day - 8th January 2021 - as a celebration of womanhood.

I have almost forgotten the tale of Nala and Damyanti. Thank you for reminding. I need to refresh my memory of this story by reading it again.

It's good that you have added the graphic. If possible, please resize (reduce the size of) the picture to retain its sharpness.

To me, it represents the triveni or the confluence of Indian mythology, painting and poetry. I like the idea and appreciate this poetic representation. Your grasp of the theme, ambience and the language is meticulous and finetuned. Thanks, Geeta ji.
