BORN OF THE SAME SOIL

 

BORN OF THE SAME SOIL
12”x12” hand-painted digital print on canvas mounted on 18”x18” canvas

2009




BORN OF THE SAME SOIL, was made for a charity show, 1x1 INDIA, organized by THE LOFT, Mumbai in March 2009 to raise funds for the victims of 26/11 Mumbai terror attack. The work juxtaposes the image of the head of Buddha with that of a tiger. Both entities are born of the same soil, are brothers-in-arm, but one is an epitome of compassion, the other of savagery. Both aspects of reality are within us, a part of us. The work does not take a ‘for’ or ‘against’ stand but leaves open the choice of which aspect to cultivate within us
