    Is this piece done on a wall as well, Megha? Is this a male or female figure? (I ask because I know with cultural adornments that wrap the head, it can sometimes be hard to tell unless you live in the culture.) I love all the detail and would love to hear more of the history of this person!

    No dear Sherry! This piece is not done on wall but on sketch paper. Just I liked the subject so I sketched it. I will color it also.
    The sketch is a male face. You said it right, it is really hard to tell man or woman.

    Very beautiful! I am continually in awe of your artistic talent. I do hope you show it again once you have colored it!
