"the bed of life"
“With the 'bed of life' the artist espouses the fragility of human existence in the large cosmic timeline of the universe.
The bed is of clay, like humans. As you stand in front of it, it makes you reflect and ponder. You can not use it without disturbing the design of the earthen lamps that symbolise droplets of water on the riverbed. The artist wants you to 'stop a while... and dwell'. The profoundness of the thought stares at you as you cannot step on the bed for the purpose it is meant to be. You can only absorb it's statement.
In all its metaphors and idioms, it gives you a moment to ponder. Human life begins and end on the bed. The stream of river that emerges from somewhere deep within and flows seamlessly over, is a fountain of life - as a metaphor of how the creation of human life begins on the bed; as well as ends with the journey of the soul transcending from the physical to the eternal. And it's entire timeline of human existence is but a nano microsecond of the microcosm that is not even a speck in the dust of the Universe.
