Modernity Meets Tradition

Rs.5,200 Inc. Tax

This is a representation of the traditional figure of the Hindu deity Ganesha. However, here the traditional form meets certain elements of modernity. The usual elements such as the mouse, the objects in his hands, the tilak are present, rendering a sense of the Hindu. However, the four hands have been reduced to a mere two, conforming to the more modern concepts of realism. Moreover, the portrait has been rendered with a sense of symmetry that is found as a major element in many forms of the abstract art, a modern genre. The background provides the best example of this particular symmetry with many different geometric shapes and patterns constituting the open space behind the deity. However, even the lines that are used to depict the deity have been symmetrical with every line having its exact similar opposite to it. In fact, the entire contour of the figure is comprised of a number of geometrical patterns that are discernible to the observant eye. Moreover, the traditional concepts of the colors associated with the divinity have been completely done away with. Such colors as white, gold, red holding popular notions of the auspicious have been replaced by only a few such as blue and yellow.
