Though the tradition of sculpture in India is as ancient as civilisation itself, modern sculpture began in the Forties when it consciously created a new idiom. Sankho Chaudhuri, a student of Ramkinkar Baij, became one of the frontrunners of introducing modernism to Indian sculpture. His exposure to European abstractionism enabled him to take the genre to a new level. This lyrical work in wood appeals due to its tendril like sway in the middle, though it defies association with any known form—precisely the intent of the sculptor.
