Sculptures reflecting different emotions of our lives are on display at the Bhuvaneshwari Kala Kendra here. Eight sculptors from across India have sculpted emotions on stone and metal as part of a 15-day camp organised by the kendra to commemorate the birth anniversary of late Prime Minister Chandra Shekhar.

The works of the artists are on display till May 16.

Prabhakar Singh (36), one of the artists from Bhagalpur in Bihar, has been carving his emotions through his Apple series.

“This is my 29th piece from the series. An apple symbolises love,” said Singh, who carved an apple with a woman in its centre using iron. He, however, hasn’t painted the apple.

“I wanted to preserve its natural beauty. Once the iron begins to rust, the orange-reddish rust colour will give it a grand look,” he said, explaining his motive behind retaining the raw look of the 10-foot high outdoor sculpture, the biggest in the exhibition.
