The Elephant Parade No.6 Collage by Hormazd Narielwalla

view additional image 1
An original paper based collage made on an antique French sewing pattern made as a metaphor between the relationship of the body and the architecture we live in. The pattern reminded me of the architectural landscape of Jailsamer. I used iconic colours of the sub continent to create the work and was pleasantly surprised to see an abstraction of a head of an Elephant. In the negative space a little mouse appears. In Indian mythology Ganesha the Elephant god is always depicted with a mouse, which was very delightful. I believe my spiritual animal is an Elephant. The work is framed in a sleek contemporary black angled frame.
