(The works will be shipped without a frame, packed flat or rolled in a tube).
While researching the themes around the Mumbai Monsoon, we of course could not do without a spotlight on Mumba-devi; the patron deity of the city. Much feted in the city, but scarcely depicted in pictorial traditions, we wanted to imagine this core force of the city in the season.
Debarchan Rout etches powerful images of Mumbadevi in the Patachitra idiom, layering it with city cartographies. The patron deity of the city is imagined during the Navarasa season in her Shant, Raudra and Veer forms (calm, fierce and heroic).
