Strange Indian painting

My friend Mike Love and I saw this print hanging on the wall of an Indian restaurant in Palo Alto. The composition makes it look like that woman is about to smash the guy's head with a sledgehammer. (Apologies for the lousy Treo cam photo.)

UPDATE: I am aware that the scene depicts blacksmithing. But the composition makes it look like the guy is about to get hammered.

UPDATE: Sepia Mutini has a fun thread where people are submitting their interpretations of the painting. Link (Thanks, Apul Patel!)
