egg shell painting-Guess the picture

About egg shell painting-Guess the picture:

Long ago when I was in 7th standard I have started the new concept of painting on the egg shells with pencil. I must have done 60-70 painting most of them contains national leaders, scenery, Krishna charithra etc.i have kept all of them very carefully in two big plastic jars and carried it to three different places when we have shifted(after my marriage as my husband had transferable job in LIC).My husband never liked me carrying all these egg shelves but as he never told me anything I used to take advantage of that and kept on carrying it with me finally in 1994 the owner of the flat at Baroda where we used to stay as lease requested me to donate these pencil painted eggs to her to keep in her bungalow .Though half-heartedly I have donated all the paintings to her. Hope she must have kept it nicely the way I used t preserve it .Later on my concept was liked and copied (R0BBED) by my brothers friend who was a good trained painter. He started painting the pictures of celebrity and became very popular .As usual the royalty has not paid to me as I was very small for the demand.

great idea of drawing on shells,,,is it a gal with mask over mouth sitting with one knees up and one hand on her knee?

Dr Rekha, in addition to my previous guess, If i look it in horizontal angle, it looks like an elephant face also.

Please let us know what it is. Every day almost 5 to 6 times, I'm opening this link to check whether u have given out the results of this guessing game.

Mahlakshmi maam, you are exactly like me. for me also if i can't understand something i get very uncomfortable till i get to know the things properly .Maam but by giving the guessing work i can understand how people can see the same things but analyze so differently .When i did this pencil drawing (very hurriedly and as the shell is so small difficult to click the photo properly) i never thought people can see so many different picture from this .Right now i feel like reveling the same but we will wait for some more guess work. Mr. Rao and other members have not commented so far .May be feeling bored to see my paintings when there are so many wonderful, awesome kolams are around .Thank you ammu maam, vinci,rajpriya and Lata for your nice guess work

Umaji and Mahalakshmi maam i don't want trouble you more .As rightly guessed by Lata and umaji this is a painting of a back view of lady with white saree walking on the road with dark black blouse with deep neck line .Ammuji guesses as foetus elephant inside the womb is very imaginative started thinking how if elephant born out of egg like any bird .imagine the size of elephant egg would be .Mahlakshmi maam guessed as Pondicherry mother thank you mama I was not aware about her. I studied about her after your comments .Vinci took her own time and guessed it as Buddha.
In short people seeing the same thing but analyze so differently from each other .I think this IS what CALLED AS modern art? Am I right?

Mahalakshi maam you asked me how to save this egg shells yes,pretty difficult yo will understand at the end .
This eggs are utilized one. I make a small hole and remove the content and then keep the shells in soap water for a short period and thouroughly washit under running water and finally keep it for drying .After the painting i keep it very carefully in big plastic jar. Just to tell u yesterday I took pain to wash and clean the egg shelves(7 to Dirol in the night and kept for drying and forgot to hide from my dear husband who has discarded all the shells in my dustbin in the morning .So now u must have understand how difficult to save(protect) this shells form no no ...not form CAT but from ..Band. of course from husband …he he
