The artwork is horizontal format painting. Edwin Lord Weeks painted a mass of women whose main job are to carry waters to their homes. It is quite strange that women are doing such a hard job. They carry heavy pitchers on their heads and apparently, they would come back to take more water. The artwork is ideal for modern Moroccan style of interior decoration home decoration. I like the artwork. The painting Water Carriers Of The Ganges is full of emotions, colorful and with well-balanced composition. [Expand]
