The Birds Post-1

Birds appear a great deal in Indian art. They often talk, often they are messengers of love. And parrots are a particular favourite.

Today’s post has women in varying attire in different times and their birds.  The first sculpture is from Belur (Shukhabhashini or a woman in conversation with a parrot). The second and fourth paintings are miniatures, the latter in the Bundi style.  The third picture is the Kalighat style, the fifth is by T. Vaikuntam.  The last but one by B. Prabha.

Last picture thanks to Somenath Mukhopadhyay.
