Gouache on Wasli (7 x 7 inches), 2013

In our general lives we very easily give names to people or relate them with some appalling things without knowing that this image will stick to them forever however they are not like this or can be changed. I have painted red striped legs which are generally taken as symbol of vulgarity or for sexual appeal but here they are composed with an intricate traditional Islamic design, which is in total contrast and the legs are not looking vulgar.
It is all about how we show certain things or how we reproduce.
