Title: Offered with Flowers

Medium: Fibre glass, Steel, Paper mache

Size: 113 x 74 x 67 cms

This sculpture represents the state of a girl about to be given away in marriage. Like the way flowers are offered to the gods, in a traditional Indian society, girls are treated like offerings to be given away. While she might appear to be happy outwardly, no one can comprehend her pain of leaving her family and starting a new one, much like that of a plucked flower.
