The painting is subtle and at the same time complex. With sharp psychological implication, it goes deep into the very process of artistic creation. The old sculptor who turns crude stone into the desired sensuous shape of beautiful danseuse puts his heart and soul into the affair. Every touch of his chisel is towards the materialization of his dream. The artist implies that apart from the touch of the chisel his touch on her body revives the dormant sexual urge once more for the object of his own creation. The painter, thereby in a way, is reminding us of the Freudian concept of suppressed desires. The old man in spite of his age is himself touched, at every touch, when he touches the touchiest place of the sensuous fleshy maiden which he has carved out of stone under the fire of creative inspiration. Here, the case is a repetition, in pictorial language of the Myth of Pygmalion and Galatea and the artist tries to suggest that it is not only the very stone yielding to his sensitive touches, but also responding to him by assuming the shape contemplated, and also responding emotionally in a seemingly voluptuous manner. The woman projects out as if to reach the creator who is bodily frail and old, but young and overwhelmingly potent sexually.
