Watercolour wash on paper pasted on paper
A prolific writer himself, literature was a major inspiration for Ramgopal Vijaivargiya. In this watercolour wash in the Bengal School style, he creates an image of Lord Ganesha as the writer of the epic Mahabharat—an instant from the ‘elephant god’s’ storyline that is not often depicted by artists. Vijaivargiya lends maturity to the visage of the lord as he sits down to write reams of the longest epic of the world. The soft hues and the Ajanta-esque rendition of the figure make it a rare expression of the popular god’s imagery.
