Reclining amid purple silk, a beautiful woman's thoughts are far away. Her gaze seems wistful and somewhat sorrowful. A red hibiscus suggests passion while a dark butterfly flits above the young nude. "She is thinking of night butterflies that sip nectar from flowers," Javanese artist Mohammad Arifin says of his compassionate portrait. The Indonesian metaphor for a prostitute is a night butterfly.
Titled "Wanita dan kupu-kupu" in Bahasa Indonesia.
