Samudra Manthan
From my recent exhibition Holy Head Space at the SIddhartha Art Gallery, 2016
Samudra manthan, ‘the churning of the ocean’ is an episode in Hindu Mythology. Here, the gods and demons work together to churn the nector of immortality from the sea. The left side is the three main gods from the Hindu mythology holding the tail and the right side is the demons holding the head of the king of the serpent ‘Basuki’ as the churning rope. Mount Mandara was used as the churning rod. The mountain started to sink when it was placed on the ocean, Vishnu, in the form of a turtle Kurma, came to their rescue and supported the mountain on his back.

Sheepoganda
This is a work from the project ‘A FEDERAL LIFE’ and it is about the issue of federalism which is a big question in the Nepalese political scenario.

I have made this character of a sheep in the form of the Hindu god Bramha and tried to link it with politics.

The sheep actually represents the members of Nepalese Constituent Assembly who most of the time are found outside the constituent hall either gossiping and eating peanuts or smoking and drinking tea or listening to the radio.
