Pastel on Board (hand-applied kaolin clay ground textured with fine marble dust granules), 26 H x 22 W in
Inspired by the story of Princess Mira Bai, this painting depicts a modern young woman trapped by social norms, but ready to change the world.
Although still underestimated, women are a powerful group, that will soon be recognized as the greatest catalyst of change. The viewer sees a woman trapped in a tower but soon notices that the very bars that hold her form a crown and ace of spade on her head, a mustache on her face, and a breastplate bearing a big heart. The sweet princess will rule.
