The series Avega - The Passion, by Indian artist Pushpamala N. is currently on display at the Nature Morte Gallery in New Delhi. The photographic story focuses on three feminine figures of Ramayana, one of the two Indian mythological sagas written in Sanskrit between the 3rd and 2nd centuries BC.
With this new series, the artist continues her reflection about iconographic references in Indian popular culture. Here, she explores the Ramayana, the foundation of Hinduism, known and shared by all in India. Like her previous works, she photographs herself, role playing the three principal heroines of the story.
