Born in January, 1926 in Margao, Goa, India, Laxman Pai received his art education in India’s Sir J. J. School of Art in Mumbai. The artist’s deep and intense adoration for natural beauty is evident in most of his artworks. Nature and human characters have always been the subject of Laxman Pai’s paintings, and in this particular piece, he continues to explore the relationship between humans and mother nature. The acrylic on canvas work depicts a woman in a pose as a dove is seen flying to her. Brightly coloured leaves also adds texture to the soothing background hues.
