This limited edition serigraph is part of a series titled ‘The Ahmedabad Serigraphs’ which consist of 33 serigraphs done by 33 different artists each serigraph is a window to the city, as seen from the eyes of the artist, each of who has presented a central idea of Ahmedabad as testimony of their feeling for the city.
This work is built around the mythology and folklores of Ahmedabad. The central built structure is a depiction from the famous folklore of Goddess Laxmi and Ahmedabad city. The background shows the intricacy similar to that of a jali, symbolic of the Sultanate rule. It is juxtaposed with various random words and phrases of different languages, symbolic of the nature of Ahmedabadis, which according to him, jump into the conversations of anything and everything, sometimes without even having any knowledge on the topic. The typography outside the red border signifies how sometimes while speaking, they do not realize where to draw the line. Amongst all this chaos of words, there is a Sanskrit Mantra, highlighted in saffron colour. Shree Yantra hand-picked from Hindu iconography painted in gold, is placed inside the central structure, depicting the prosperity of this city. Further the impressions of the hands and feet depict the auspiciousness of Goddess Laxmi.
