After a heart attack in the Eighties, Tyeb Mehta spent two years at Santiniketan as artist-in-residence, where he came to greatly admire the works of Somnath Hore. Though the line became integral in Tyeb Mehta’s art since the Sixties when he accidently created a diagonal streak, some of his works, particularly those done while he was in Santiniketan, feature vertical lines, sometimes signifying charak pole, which was used by the Santhal tribe during their local festivities. This print, in fact, was made in the period when Mehta was in Santiniketan
