Harappan Bull


This Cast glass depiction of the Harappan Bull is inspired by the seals found at The Indus Valley Civilization (a.k.a Harappan Civilization) which arose approximately at 6000BC in Northern India . 

The Indus Valley Civilization is considered one of the world’s earliest urban civilizations, along with its contemporaries, Mesopotamia and Ancient Egypt . These seals are alleged to be the genesis of the written word for the Indian civilization and also indicative of global trade among the populations.

The Harappan bull is intensely symbolic of the evolution of the Indian Civilization and was thus, chosen by the artist as his inspiration to create an immense cast glass installation at the Lemon Tree Hotel at Aerocity, New Delhi where the back lighting plays with the depth of the glass & aims to capture the tranquility of the era it represents.

The installation is a towering 6 feet tall & 6 feet wide structure & comprises of 36 blocks of cast glass, each 1.5 inches thick.
