Tissue paper is a very fragile medium that I used in this work. I relate it to the fragility of the body. The stitched bodies of the dead that I saw in the post-mortem department of Banaras Hindu University had an impact on me and it reflects in my work. Here I made the sculpture as a dress of the size of my body to feel the pain of the dead man by wearing his body as it is my own.
