K. S. Radhakrishnan

Santiniketan-trained K. S. Radhakrishnan, who was mentored by Ramkinkar Baij, is regarded as one of the foremost modernist sculptors of India for various reasons, one of which is the seeming effortlessness with which he has given persona to his creations. The most well-known of his figures are the male Musui and the female Maiya, often represented together. In the Untitled bronze work, he represents Maiya with a pole, almost in the fashion of a pole-vaulter, ready to embark on a flight, the parabolic curve of the pole symbolising the distance she would travel and attain her freedom.
