Birds play an important role in Indian mythology and culture. Subject to intricate symbolism, they are considered sacred – known to belong to the upper world in Shamanic lore – loved, nurtured and worshiped. “Having an affinity for birds and being enamored by feathers, which are thought to possess healing energies, I believe that I am making felt the presence of these beings,” says the artist.
In this series, naturally discarded feathers are meticulously applied in layers to create a distinct visual impact. Transformed and rearranged, the feathers evoke new life.
