This piece was a custom commission. It is a gift from Roopa to Poonam for her birthday.
And as you can imagine, it was a lot of fun to put together, especially with all the disparate elements involved. The hope was to show how much of a super woman Poonam is, in efficiently and effectively managing a top level job, children, friends, interests and all that. The imagery of a multi-armed goddess was borne of this idea.
After lots of research and many conversations with Roopa- this was the end result. Each of the elements depicted from the dress and jewellery to the items she ‘holds’ are typical of Poonam.
I hope she enjoys it as much as I enjoyed making it!
Happy Birthday Poonam!!
