There are several metaphors embedded within this sculpture of a Sacrificial Mother engaged in battle with a chimera that emerges from her vulva. The first is my own struggle for autonomy within the constraints of a misogynist Indian family, and that of my feminist peers. The second metaphor is that of nations who give birth to fascist leaders and ideologies that are extremely self destructive and the subsequent struggles for human rights like the current Indian government or the 45 US President. The last metaphor is the imperiled existence of human and animal life on the planet due to climate change. The weapons and jewelry are generally used to adorn Hindu deities in home altars and temples
