⚬ Description ⚬

This is an archival print of the original collage. Fits standard 8” x 10” frame.
The original piece was cut and pasted by hand from collection of used and vintage books.

Recreating the symbolic Caduceus with used cutout images was challenging yet enlightening.

The caduceus depicted as a stick entwined by two snakes and surmounted wings is the symbol of modern medicine in India and elsewhere. The use of the symbol is very ironical as how can destructive creatures used to represent a healing purpose. The answer lies in the snakes characters of, skin shedding representing immortal life, sudden change in activity emphasizing transit from sickness to cure. Incorporating leopard cutout captures the strength and grace in a lot of us and the use of raven further highlights the magic in healing.
