Etched on paper from old history textbooks in Hindi, the 6 small artworks in this set depict the silent objects in our lives which have slipped into oblivion, much like our pride in our own history, culture and identity. As we lead our busy lives, how often do we pause to value that comfortable pillow, our worn-out chair, or the rolling pin used to make food at home? We must learn to appreciate those things which have gone unnoticed or been lost along the way - like the silent objects all around us, as well as our history and culture, lost in old books.
The size of each artwork is 8 x 5.5 inches. With frame, each work measures 15.5 x 11.5 inches.
