The presented creation is indeed seminal, owing to the fact that MF Husain deviates from his human, highly symbolic workstyle; in order to celebrate the unseen syntax of a painter’s world. He dissects the gargantuan panel, spanning 15 feet, to capture the maelstrom of visuals, which erupt from the sub-conscious.
