'Girl and the Parrots' (undated) by A.P. Santhanaraj, pen and ink on paper, 22 x 23 inches unframed,

An enigmatic work by Santhanarj for many reasons. One can almost see the technique in this work, the duration of time taken to create, in the way that the woman emerges from these abstract forms placed randomly on the paper. A parrot sits on one of these shapes as if it is a three-dimensional object, its foot dangling over the edge.
