Duco paint on fibreglass with vulcanized rubber tube

Comprehending the self and the world from her own vantage point has shaped Navjot’s practice, which has intensified her social commitment and inner journey. In this sculpture, the female figure—hands clenched before the forehead—is precariously balanced, gaining strength from her spiritual belief and meditation. Shaped like a foetus, it commemorates two significant events—the artist’s birth, and her father’s death—both of which occurred on the same date, though fifty-one years apart. This work is from the series of fibreglass sculptures under the broader theme of ‘Touch’, where Navjot has given the sculpture a sheen with commercial paint.
