Ancient Merchantry

My friend set me off on this train of thought when he asked me to depict ‘Trade’ in the form of paintings. The romantic in me was immediately transported to the days of yore. Sculptures, history and trade all merged and fused together to form this Tryptech. The scenes are set in the Roman, Egyptian and Middle Eastern locales The upper half inspired from ancient sculptures merges with the lower portion on a sea of lotuses creating a common feature as if to link moments captured from history.

This set has been painstakingly fixed on wooden panels and have a coat of resin (the images below are minus the resin) which makes them look absolutely ravishing! I think they would sit right and perfect in a cool office.

Author: Anuradha Kabra

Anuradha Kabra grew up in the midst of an environment which thrived in art and culture. Her mother (Kamla Kabra) and father (Brijbhushan Kabra) are both well reknowned artists and have always been her inspiration. Long back she experimented with oils and acrylics, but with time realised that her skills were more honed to sketching and watercolours. Having grown up with a deep love and comfort with animals, her works are naturally drawn towards depicting animals. Her deft and confident handling of her pen and her intutive sense of colours led to a range of beautiful artwork.
