The two large panels, each measuring
6m x 2m
have been created using
Vintage ‘Dhaniyo’ traditional textiles
of the Yaduvanshi Ahir tribe from Kutch.

It is estimated that this artwork required 720 man-days (of 8 dedicated hours each) to embroider, 70 man-days to hunt out 12 matching pieces from over 25 villages in Kutch and 30 man-days for assembly – altogether an effort of 820 man-days.
