This painting is part of P. Khemraj’s most celebrated series, Asha Hans, which reiterates the artist’s conviction that life is a gift to revel in. Khemraj’s art was born from real-life encounters, inspirations, and his spontaneous zest for life. The presence of European motifs in this evidently fantastical landscape—cherubs, distinctly classical human bodies, faces, the wings, swans, horses, and wreaths—all point to the idiom that evolved from the artist’s years of reflection on art, music, poetry, and life itself.
