The significance of M. K. Parandekar’s art lies in the documentation of some of the most important archaeological sites and ruins through his art. Ashoka’s pillars were discovered at various points by archaeologists in different parts of India, and Parandekar paints a similar site in this Untitled work, capturing vivid details and intricate elements. The brown tones of the painting show his skill in academic realism, and the human figures rendered in a small size allow the magnitude of the monument to be highlighted further.
