TREE OF LIFE PANEL
The peacock tree of life panel was a special commission. The brief was to have a wall mural which was back lit. We took the classical motif of trees in the Patachitra tradition of Odisha and further reﬁned it and translated it in metal. The leaves were given rice grain texture and undulation in order to add movement within the panel as well as for light to peep out.
The mural was given a verdigris patina treatment to impart an antique look. It is exposed to the elements and forms a beautiful feature in the client’s inner courtyard.
