Manjit Bawa introduced fragments of his thoughts ideas and poetry into the rational world throughout his artistic oeuvre. Born in Dhuri Punjab Bawa's childlike fascination with music spirituality and philosophy breathed heavily on his canvas. This work depicts Bawa's early experimentation with forms. The artist reinvented the free floating form which later became figures and the inanimate shapes reassembled to take on animal and human figuration. (Modern and Contemporary South Asian Art Catalogue Sotheby's 2013) The serigraphs and this artwork were both made in 1977.
