Title: Sleeping with the Key-I

Medium: Wood, Metal

Size: 80 x 60 x 30 cms

In the night of weariness
let me give myself up to sleep without struggle,
resting my trust upon thee…-Rabindranath Tagore. 

This sculpture captures the ethos of modern life that struggles to find sleep that is entangled with the concerns of the material world. The key under the pillow is symbolic of a mind that is active and insecure about the possessions, wanting to ensure everything is locked away before sleeping.
