The largest sculpture made from steel in India has been revealed in a shopping mall in Delhi.
Called Line of Control, the new statue has been created by leading contemporary artist Subodh Gupta, who has created the piece to be displayed at the South Court Mall in Saket.
The monument has been created in the shape of a giant mushroom rising up from a base and which is designed to represent the troubled times in which we live, but also the possibility for redemption.
He is renowned for constructing his work from a number of kitchen utensils such as plates, bowels, tiffin boxes and cutlery.
“I love cooking and I spend a lot of time in the kitchen. The stainless steel utensils are so shining and so bright – it symbolises the brightness and the emptiness of a shining India,” Mr Gupta said.
Mr Gupta is well-known for creating large-scale works that have been crafted in metal and some of his sculptures have been displayed in London’s Saatchi Gallery.
