"Untitled (Mahishasura)", a seminal example from the Mahishasura series by the famous Indian Modernist Tyeb Mehta, is one of the most expensive Indian paintings which was sold at Rs 11,84,73,000 by Christies in 2012. In this captivating painting, Mehta has chosen to focus on the faces of the Goddess and the Demon. The proximity of their bodies, and hence their faces, allows Mehta to pictorially explore his interest in a binary image.


As the bodies writhe both in agony and attraction, compassion and destruction become interchangeable, Mehta's stark formal treatment of dismembered figures with arms flailing, the fractured picture plane with juxtaposed flat areas of colour, and the emphasised diagonals heighten the impact and awareness of violence and suffering.
