Music and poetry developed the concept of Ragamala, the garland of ragas, long before the art of painting adopted it as one of its subjects. To capture and comprehend the divine qualities of music, its practitioners believed each melody to have a personified or deified form beside a sound form.
Ragini Gujari deals with torment of love in separation; pining for her absent lover. She is represented as a young woman, erotic in the traditional form, whose blossoming youth and beauty inspires love. Wearing many ornaments and fine clothes, holding a tanpura on her shoulder, this fair, lovely and superbly accomplished Ragini Gujari sings her songs of woe to gazelles. With their faces uplifted, they gaze at her in silent admiration, enchanted by her beauty as much as by the music.
Ragini Gujari, wife of Raga Deepak, is sitting on the river bank playing the tanpura. She enchants the flora and fauna alike.
