Saat Saath Arts

A solid piece of rock has been carved to look like a small mountain. From that mountain the body of an elephant is being carved out. On top of the elephant is what could be the equipment for a campsite or perhaps weapons of war. How much will the elephant be able to carry and how big of an elephant can come out of the mountain? LN Tallur’s sculpture asks how much we demand from art, how many questions is it supposed to ask or answer, how many references and how much history is it required to hold?
