This piece is primarily a monochromatic painting in purple, though there is a hint of blue here and there. The figure in the painting is abstract in form, though it is mildly suggestive of a seated human figure, the straight line in the bottom half of the painting representing a seat. The figure’s top half arcs upward and is completed with another strong, straight purple line. The painting’s figure has very graceful lines, and it seems almost delicate.
Purple is a color often associated with royalty, and the figure’s similarity to a seated figure suggests that it may be an image of nobility seated upon a throne. The painting’s delicate lines and purple color suggest refinement and elegance, perhaps befitting some royal personage. This painting’s overall impression and mood is one of dignified grace and beauty.
