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.

Ahmedabad was called Manchester of the East because of its similarity with the famous cotton textile centre of Manchester, United Kingdom. Back during industrial revolution, Ahmedabad became the textile hub and so became an epithet for the world of textile. This serigraph is a self portrait of Trivedi, with a textile collage crown adorned by her. The crown represents the then very famous geodesic structure of the Calico Mill Dome of Ahmedabad and the flourishing textile market underneath. To her, blues, yellows, magenta have their unique vibrancy, and has a royal feel to them, thus this portrait incorporates all these colours. Trivedi created the patterns on textile collage using the same patterns that were used on traditional wood block printed cloth.
