Backbone, a sculptural installation by Shanthamani Muddaiah at Aspinwall house grounds, venue of Kochi - Muziris biennale 2014


Nestling on the beautiful grounds of the Aspinwall house lies this brilliant sculptural installation !
'Backbone' was created by Shanthamani Muddaiah.


This art work has captivated me. Spent a lot of time appreciating it and taking pictures. An awesome work, no doubt !


This beautiful coastal land full of greenery has a rich and colorful history. Blessed by natural beauty, suitable for the growth of exotic spices and condiments, inhabited by simple souls centuries ago, life here was peaceful. They welcomed visitors with great hospitality. Visitors wanted business relations as well that turned later on to hostile take overs and acquisitions.


Standing here all these thoughts surfaced in my mind like an archaeological excavation. Each and every piece we have unearthed are precious, they all have awesome stories to tell, the nature here speaks volumes, only we need to listen like a meditation, the backbone of events that shaped the lives of scores of generations who lived here. Moreover, still it is getting reflected on one and all; we experience it...just be here :)


One of the best !


Cinder and cement...awesome !


Thanks for portraying such a brilliant, thought provoking work :)

Elephant wearing Nettippattom in the heart of city !



Well...this is not a real elephant but a life size model !

I shot this in front of Penta Menaka, a popular shopping complex at Marine drive in Kochi. It looked real...amazing ! An air pump was attached to it by which the trunk was moving.

'Nettippattom', an ornamental gold plated sacred caparison is worn over elephant's forehead during temple festivals in Kerala. Now-a-days miniature versions of this beautiful caparison you will see in cars and houses also. Being sacred it is thought to bring prosperity.
