ARTIST'S STATEMENT: Head of a Baby
Heads have a great significance in Indian myths - when Ganesh's head was accidentally severed, his life was preserved by transplanting a baby elephant's head onto his body. Rahu and Ketu, Indian Castor and Pollox, are always represented by their heads, we never know what their body looks like. Ravana's awesome power is manifest in his multiple heads. Heads, then, become a symbol for all of life. When that head is of a baby, it becomes not only this representation of all things around itself, but also a place where hopes, desires (and despair) of an entire generation are projected.
