One of my favourite artworks would be a beautiful painting by the veteran artist Samundra Man Shrestha called Shiva and Parvati Dancing in Kailash. In this painting, the forms are very fluid and the background is very exquisite. Also details of the jewellery and the clothes that both the Gods are wearing are brilliant. It’s a painting that requires more than words to explain its beauty, one needs to actually see it to understand it.
