62,370 stitches* | 385 Hours* This tapestry, titled DUAA, weaves together different aspects of India’s religious and cultural practices. A man, somewhere in the arid landscapes of Rajasthan, invokes the Almighty’s blessings by paying obeisance with his hands brought together in duaa (prayer) – a practice normally observed by Muslims. The man’s headgear, however, is a Pagri worn by the Indians in the Punjab region of India. Subtle colors, textures, and tonal variations give this tapestry a depth and meaning. This artwork can be displayed solo, or as a collage with other tapestries of the Dacait series.
