Isn't She Pretty?

She is one of Raja Ravi Verma's lovely women (not original...just a reproduction), but that doesn't stop her from being the prettiest woman in our living room. Incidentally she is supposed to enticing her lover with a lemon...really strange. The Boy and I have still not figured that one out!
Many thanks to Nandini's Mom for this lovely wedding present and Rajesh's parents who carried this all the way from India for us.

I also absolutely adore the "Milkmaid" Painting. His paintings make me feel really good inside. Amazing.

The lemon is just there for effect I suppose. But look at her palloo ;) She's definitely doing the enticing act there!

Well, as far as I know .. a lemon is rumored to be a form of contraception or at least a protection against STD's so maybe the beauty is telling the enticee that she is ready for an unbridled good time or maybe she just wants a very very sticky situation ....
Enuff wisdumb. Must catch up with you all soon .. been ages ...
