Ganapathy offering flowers
?Ganapathy Offering Flowers? is a tender portrait of childhood. The protagonist is not Ganesha the elephant headed god, but his namesake, the artist?s grandson, who makes a floral offering to a hour-headed child-divinity seated on a bird, crowned with an over flowing bouquet of flowers. Burman often sets his tableaus in a pastoral paradise in which fruits, birds and animals abound, proposing a tranquility and abundance that are threatened by the seismic turbulences of contemporary life.
