Sindhu Series- III

Etching on a Copper plate. 20.32 x 25.4 cm.

The entire Sindhu Series depicts the Indus Valley Civilization. Indus Valley Civilization, dating back to over 5000 years ago is where my inspiration lies and has stayed strong with me for more than 15 years and still going strong. As aptly titled, The Sindhu Series which is the literal translation of the Indus Valley Civilization. The positive message that it conveys is that the artist wants these derived forms to travel the world very clear with the etched stamps on the copper plate. The perforated brass shape 'O' as we now call it originates from the undeciphered script of the past. My other works in the series have various other motifs like ‘Swastika’ ‘a fish’ ‘Letter U’ ‘Letter A’ etc which all came into being ages ago through the primitive men and women. But we Indians waited untill the Aryan dynasty to cast titles for these forms/ symbols.
