"Maati ka bartan hai pyaare, maati mein mil jaana ha"...
Humans and the matki, both eventually return to Mother Earth at the end of their lives. This artwork is part of the 'Maati' series, which depicts human emotions while highlighting the humble ‘matki’ (earthen pots made of maati or mud), as the hero. Drawing parallels between ‘us’ and the matki, the artist has portrayed different facets of human life in this series of artworks.
This artwork, created on ceramic plates as a set of 3, highlights how every aspect of life has possibilities for multiple interpretations. When we form thoughts in our minds and articulate them through written or spoken words, it is not necessary that the receiver of that information interprets what we said, exactly how we meant it. Our ideas could be turned upside down in someone else's frame of reference. Similarly, this artwork, while created using symmetry, is infact an abstract depiction open to interpretation by the viewer. It can be displayed in different ways, depending on an individual's preferences.
The diameter of the plates is 10.5 inches, and the framed pieces measure 15 x 15 inches each.
