A sense of peace and harmony emanates from this image of two men sitting on the ground, worshipping and studying scriptures. A serene, quiet moment is beautifully captured here with a rich palette and detailed patterns to adorn the scenery. The detail of the men's' faces and their traditional attire shows an outstanding level of precision.
