Parotia Dancing - Bird Of Paradise
The Parotia bird of paradise , has one of the most remarkable mating
dance in the bird world. This is surprising for many naturalists as to
how this bird is able to arrange its plume to form such a skirt-like
shape,, and then perform a dance like a ballerina !
Often one sees how man made objects shape our day to day life. Helmets in particular are protective gear and should be thought that way, but what if they have a capability to symbolize more than that.
For instance in the work below
I am trying to depict the picturesque undersea a diving helmet has seen in its life, or was it used for some adventurous mission. One might wonder! It allures you to go one another exploration. The work uses surreal style to portray the relationship between the divers helmet and the sea, as if it is a gateway to another realm.
and in this one
The scene is set in a distant future or a different land perhaps, where snails are crawling upon the abandoned astronauts helmet. This is a clever juxtaposition of the two elements one that has traveled space with and the other that could barely move, leaving us to wonder what has happened or its fate!
moving on if abadoned helmet are left in nature like in this one
Nature prevails and even in the aftermaths of war life shall prevail. The sense of hostility will fade away with time leaving back fertility.
helmets can also depict profession and the adventurous stories attached with it
.......find the treasure of imagination.
To be continued!!
