Boats in the Mandovi II
Art pieces of tiles and Dolphin bones
The artist has captured a special moment in time when the boats depart the shores of the Mandovi accompanied by the mellow undertones of the sunset. Different textures of colors have been layered onto each other to bring this painting to life. The river forms an integral part of the coastal ecosystem that is symbolic of the Goan traditions. Famous for its dusk cruises, the Mandovi is a must-visit to get the complete Goan experience.
