Artist Statement: “The first version of Siddhartha was made in 1984, as a gift to my elder brother who had renounced the world. Originally inspired from a sculpture of The Buddha, this piece aims to capture the peace and inner radiance of enlightenment. It was redone in 2010.
Although redone in 2010, Return and Rest was first made in 1995, when my sister had left Mumbai for a small town with plenty of earth, trees, sun and fresh air.”
