Late on the Evening 2020 | Umrao (Height 45cm)

Umrao is named after famed 19th century Lucknow courtesan Umrao Jaan, whose account was the first ever Urdu November published in 1899, written by Mirza Hadi Ruzwa. The form and surface of Umrao seeks to communicate the dynamism and expressionism of Indian dance forms, which combine movement of the body and feet together with facial expression to mesmerise audiences.
