Description Gouache painting on mica of a blacksmith. The smith is seated on the ground which is indicated by a band of tan paint along the base of the mica sheet. In front of him is his forge and bellows which he can pump using a chain which hangs by his head. He wears a white top and dhoti and a red shawl over his shoulders. He holds a hammer in his right hand which is raised above his head. In his left hand he holds a glowing piece of metal on an anvil. On the floor in front of the smith and on the box on his left are implements of his trade and also items which he has made. It appears he is making blades – some of which have already been polished.
