Drawing onto issues of climate change, the artwork re-makes a landscape that is free from the fear of being lost amidst ecological harm and destruction. The tapestry is woven in an ode to the once beloved river Kaushiki of sage Vishwamitra which came to be known as Vishwamitri, that flows around the city of Baroda, having its tender source through the hills of Pavagadh. Today, this river stands polluted amid the busy city and faces challenges; especially floods. I seek to draw attention to the river and its changing ecologies, which are crucial to nurturing it & receive the endless offering the river has, to give humankind.
