feast

i'm reading a book called A Matter of Taste: the Penguin Book of Indian Writing on Food, and this picture is on the cover:



the book is an interesting read, but the cover is what really caught my attention. i've realised that only in a Jamini Roy painting does a cat get a whole lobster to itself.

I love post. And painting.
P.s. Do cats like lobsters? I'm assuming they do. What about Gullu?

hey but i think it's a pretty typical poter chhobi...which he painted slightly differently...there are people tree tee shirts with the painting/print of cat and lobster and a cell phone with the caption underneath reading "working lunch"
