Description:

“The work replicates a woman wearing a bird mask to convey the theme, ‘repetition and a return to archetypes’, capturing the essence of humans living in society. Humans form orderly societies, as controlling chaos using law and order is a prerequisite for human civilization. The work de-picts how the coexistence of chaos and order creates repetitions like those found in opposing mirrors. The mask represents a sociable personality and shows how human coexistence results in endless repetitions like those found in opposing mirrors”.
