The Gallery of Modern Art never ceases to take my breath away – the bright colors, geometric patterns and the contemporary design of the venue. I browse through the exhibits, admiring the artistry and the concepts behind each artwork, and as I turn the corner, I see the most stunning piece by far.
A glamorous young lady is standing with her back towards me taking in a painting. I’m captivated by the contemporary design of her bright red Banaras net saree. Exquisite gold zari butta on the body and Banaras brocade applique and cutwork on the border add a trendy feel, while the layered look presented by the special brocade saree petticoat creates a designer touch that could well be the centerpiece of a fashion show.
As she walks into the spotlight, I notice several heads turning in her direction. It’s as though we are all viewing a spectacular creation of modern art.
