DESCRIPTION

Mithra focuses on the Indian oil lamp in her landscape. The lighting of an oil lamp symbolises prosperity and celebrates the triumph of light over darkness, good over evil and knowledge over ignorance. The artist creates a landscape inspired by the colours used in Kolam making and the Enney Vilakku with the hope of bringing colour back to life during these dreary times.
