Nothing makes a more stylish entrance than a graceful deity emerging from the shadows...
Today's Image of the Day is the mystical Deer Goddess by Shyam Deshpande – what do you think?
What we really love about this piece is the way that majesty and simplicity have been so skilfully balanced. The loose style of the derelict temple really amplifies the visual impact of the spectral deity emerging from the shadows.
There's nothing to unnecessarily distract us from what really counts, which is essential in making a delicate piece like this one achieve it's intended effect.
