Mahabharata – In the Tent£ 155.00 – £ 705.00 BUY
The composition and the distribution of the light recall the expressive language of the Italian Baroque period and the atmosphere is inspired by Caravaggio. The dramatic chiaroscuro charges with solemnity the tragic moment that heralds the death of Abhimanyu, the young champion of the Pandava army.
Coloured figurines of soldiers are deployed on the strategic plan, carefully studied by generals. The sharp dark and light enhances the concept that rationality in war has a very relative control over the outcome of the war, other qualities like wrath, courage, strength, resistance and hate contribute strongly to the fulfilment of the destiny. A dramatic sense of the game between karma – destiny – and free will permeate the scene.
Mahabharata – The Young Hero£ 150.00 – £ 665.00 BUY
The intense and poignant moment of the death of Abhimanyu. Enemies strongly desired his death and they killed him by deception and betrayal. Surrounded and pierced by innumerable arrows, Abhimanyu stoically fights to his last breath. The young hero’s expected and untimely death enhances his valiant glory.
The artist deliberately seeks to capture the adolescent prowess of the invincible Abhimanyu. Although the body is well shaped and toned, the proportions of the head are slightly larger compared to the body, not unlike the sculpture of David by Michelangelo, thus reflecting the typical physique of a young man not yet in his twenties.
