For centuries the grandeur of Venice thrives by the ceremonial customs that casts a spell on itself. The decorative veiling of Venetian buildings is a sacred ritual that has symbolic weight. It does this by maintaining relationships of symbol upon symbol. Remove away all the symbols, ‘and what are you left with?’.
This statement print honorably upholds the joyful Venetian practice of grandeur. See the building in Piazza San Marco; it is adorned with an Indian Sari. The Indian custom of adoration called, ‘Shringar,’ is the adornment of oneself. Shringar is repurposed in a pageantry that is India consecrating Venice. “Hey presto! It’s now an even more marvelous building that feels and looks like a temple of a goddess”. Notice how Shringar takes hold of the female walking toward us in the foreground.
Gouache is used to highlight the most minuscule of details.
