‘Prathicchaya,’the word means reflection or image. All arts are reflections or Praticchaya of life and truth which the artist conceives and reproduces under conditions of artistic beauty and truth. Here he presents his view of the pictorial art in conspicuous symbolism, in the image of a young maiden, solitary in her chamber and before the mirror, which reflects to her the very charm of her innocent but blooming face. The graceful beauty of her body is in the traditional Kerala dress, the cosmetics which are not many, the Sindur, the powder and the oils are in agreement with the ornaments. The old traditional style of household interior is well portrayed. They are sufficiently realistic and it is to be noted that she is not over-decked with ornaments, but at this stage of her hairdo and make-up, she is evidently contented with the visual reality of her beauty, but she is so submissive and proud without being vain. Some unknown mode of inner fulfillment is evident on the face which has an evanescent quality. The painting has a classical bias in composition as it is evident from its subdued colour tone and linear perfection.
