This young artist celebrated the festival of “Budh Purnima” with this piece of mandala art. She made do with an ordinary black gel pen, as the entire city was in lockdown.
What is striking is how the caption–The Buddha–has been written. Mahi learnt this art of ‘wood writing’ from her mother who’d created this art form when she was in school! The words are written in a manner to try and create a ‘natural wood’ effect. When drawn, it seems as though thin slivers of wood have been strategically placed to resemble letters.
