Tejswini Narayan Sonawane
Etching on Paper
9 x 9 in.
A Woman is a "Mother of Mankind? despite holding such an important and unquestionable position, role of women has been defined by men over millennia. In my work I have created "woman? which is in the form of bird and wings, shows the inner thought of a woman that she wants to fly high, achieve her dreams peacefully. Through my artistic skills and individual thought of woman?s dream of living in the society, I have shown a dream of woman that she wants to come out of "Line of Control? made by the society.
