Fierce artwork! Item looked exactly as pictured and nothing was distorted. Very vibrant rich colors! I bought it as a birthday present for someone and they loved it! Only issue is it was so awesome I wanted to keep it for myself!

Although the edges of the design was a bit blurry it was still a really nice tote bag for the beach.

Good quality canvas, and the photos looks great.

I was very disappointed as the picture on the front of the bag has a black background but the lining on all of these bags is grey. It looks so dreadful I’m sure it even looks worse with a light or pastel coloured cover. As you use it this grey keeps showing giving it a cheap look. it would be so much better without lining if grey is the best you can do. Also the fabric is too soft and droops if the bag isn’t full. So you end up having a droopy bag with grey lining showing. It would be so much better to make this style in the fabric you use in the standard tote. It keeps its shape and the image on this fabric is much clearer. Also it doesn’t need to be lined.

Artist's Description

SATI is an age old custom which was prevalent in anciant India. When a woman became a widow, she was expected to step into the funeral pyre of her dead husband, and made to sacrifice her life. The reason for this custom could have been to avoid discord in families, or even probably there were more women outliving men in ratio. This painting is representational of the age old custom SATI, and the fire is in the form of the poor young women who would have cried for help before death.

About Usha Shantharam

My personal philosophy is to open peoples minds to the beauty of our times and the scenes of everyday life around us. I paint what I see, experience and enjoy in my day to day life. Hence you can see that I paint everything including landscapes, still life, people, portraits, man- made structures etc. Feelings and emotions are a major part of life, and so you can see them too in my paintings. And being a peace loving person, I hope you can see that too in my paintings.
