    Any one know what these drawing are from Greek? India Indian? It’s some kind of ink and water color drawing. Frame looks like 70s. No signature. I didn’t take out of frame yet. I Love the drawing and the simplicity of it. Just not sure if it’s Greek or India style. Thanks for looking 511B73EB-4BED-45B5-915A-F5ED7906CDAB.jpeg 022B4920-9236-4FC5-8B70-BC261A1E1177.jpeg 0920BE1F-DA23-4AEC-B908-D29EA609DEEF.jpeg 25A458DD-2393-431C-8F30-ED72D4AB73FB.jpeg

    Maybe Knossos, Mycenae, like that.

    The single eye thing along with naked boobs rules out India and Egypt. Someplace around Greece is more likely for me too.

    I think it might be a contemporary painting/drawing from India, based on the traditional Madhubani style. The ladies appear to be bathing in a river, hence the semi-nudity. The scene may be based on a story from Hindu mythology of the "gopi maidens" (milk maids) where Krishna steals their clothes while they are bathing.

    Here is a modern print by Shubhanjana Sikdar (Bangalore, India) that has similar characteristics: Shubhanjana print.jpg
