The idea I have in mind is the image when Mae Thorani or Vasundhara, the Earth Goddess, dressed up before the vital moment. She is mostly personified as a young woman wringing the waters of detachment out of her hair, to drown Mara and his demons army sent to tempt the Buddha as He's about to reach the supreme enlightenment. Though everything looks pretty mundane here. I'm going to depict an epic scene next time, but I'm not ready yet.
No actual reference used.
There's just a few books about Peter Paul Rubens at hand, and Rubensian figures in my head after months of Rubens studies.
