Mithuna - Large Art Prints
The painting depicts Husain's modernism confronts Indian classical aesthetics at a fundamental level, as elsewhere the posture of his female figure standing to the right of the canvas draws upon the tribhanga postures of classical sculpture. More importantly, here, he also contends with the classical concept of the Mithuna or loving couple. These amorous couples, known in Sanskrit generally
as mithuna are an integral part of the ornamentation of many classical temples both within the Hindu and Buddhist traditions. Generally seen as an auspicious symbol of fertility, such couples are frequently included on either side of the entrance to a shrine. The couples are understood to have multiple meanings, ranging from an obvious celebration of life's pleasures to the more metaphorical symbolism of a human soul's longing for union with the divine.
