Fool's Gold

18"htx 10"dia

Glass paint on soda glass, FRP, Brass, cement board


The series was inspired by visits to local museums in several states in India and the poor state of specimens and display units and herein it's application to the larger picture of conservation.

Belljars were used for controlled chemical experiments as well in Biology labs and Natural History museums to keep models or certain embalmed species on display.

Here we use it as a means of display for various reasons one as

specimens on the brink of extinction due to habitat destruction and therefore are valuable and need to be protected, secondly how slowly the high value of property overrides this.

The artwork consists of several buildings with their plasters peeled exposing the inner grey colour of concrete and one elevated cluster in brass. Property has become the 'new gold' and we are forgetting that it is the wealth of nature that is more valuable. This gold we seek is actually ''fools gold''
