Various yoga mudras are being exhibited as a unique concept in the form of sculptures by a mother-daughter duo at Sun City. Anita Arren and Parul Aggarwal are known names in sculpting.
Anita started creating sculptures to help her daughter during her free time. And from there the journey started. She decided to create sculptures on the theme of various yoga mudras.
Interestingly, she is creating these sculptures by moulding clay with her hands. Parul is an architect by profession, and she is trying her hand on the potter wheel, which earlier was her hobby. She has done a course in Japan related to design using the potter wheel.
“I have not taken any training, but my daughter was interested in it, so I used to help her,” said Anita. “I am more into yoga, and I started creating sculptures depicting various yoga mudras. At our first exhibition at the Taj in New Delhi, it was taken as a unique concept. People liked it,” she added.
“Most of our sculptures are in stoneware and we finish the sculptures either in glazed or matte,” said Parul. “We are preparing sculptures in terracotta using natural colours.”
About her interest, she said, “I believe architecture and sculpting go hand in hand. Though I started my career as an architect, I used to work on the potter wheel. Then the hobby matured and turned into a career. Here I am today.”
