The art depicts a subtle form of an ancient genderless androgynous. God from Hinduism holding red power in their hand. The powder, or sindur, is a traditional vermilion red or orange-red coloured cosmetic powder from the Indian subcontinent, usually worn by married women along the part of their hair. The sindur is a visual indicator that a woman is married, and ceasing to wear usually implies widowhood in Hindu communities. However, the sindur symbolises contrast or conflict of traditional ideals and contemporary experiences for women in this piece. In ancient times, this red powder marked the identity and availability of women.
DESCRIPTION - When it comes to meditation, I avoid all forms of contrast. In this place of emptiness, there is no room for two. However, outside there is always room for the ultimate difference.
