A world traveller, Sharmini finds most of her inspiration in the varied cultures of the world. Her works do not simply replicate motifs and symbols of ancient and modern civilizations; instead they are expressed by her unique vision in a way that evokes and celebrates them.
Inspiration Materialized: "The Maya"
Sharmini has travelled extensively to Mexico and is always awed by the beauty she sees there. After closely studying the design motifs of the Mayan culture, Sharmini created this magnificent wall hanging that pays homage to ancient Mayan art, while simultaneously revealing her own artistry. The proportions of The Maya suggest that it could be worn by a high priestess in a Mayan ceremony. The imaginative composition is framed with a long vibrant fringe, conjuring the feeling of ritual and ceremony that is also expressed within the imagery.
