This would fit in a hindi pirate movie. A mysterious dusky beauty with a parrot on her shoulder in an old fort on an island.
Maybe a coloured parrot would have more appropriate than a white one, although this one looks interesting too
What is she so afraid of? Is she running away from something or running towards something?
I am afraid i will never know. Saree is not the easiest dress for running, so well done.
