About the Artwork +

Renowned artist Sameep Vishwakarma in his Bastar Iron Craft precisely crafts a diya with curves, human figures, and swans. Diyas are often associated with the concept of light, both in a literal and symbolic sense. They are used in various cultural and religious ceremonies to symbolize the victory of light over darkness and the triumph of good over evil. The inclusion of swans and human figures in the design symbolizes enlightenment, purity, or spiritual awakening. Swans are birds commonly found in natural settings, such as rivers and lakes. In Bastar iron craft, designs often draw inspiration from nature. The presence of swans is a representation of the local fauna and the importance of the natural environment in the lives of the people.
