Huma Bhabha’s commanding bronze stands in the courtyard of the Madhavendra Palace as a sentinel, greeting everyone that enters. She is strong and powerful, but also abused and disfigured. She is a universal image whose references seem to come from multiple cultures and diverse historical eras. With its title “God of Some Things” we are led to believe she is a deity, though from no specific religion. Her form is blocky and solid, as if only slightly carved, her features possibly eroded by wind and water, rather than man-made.
