According to a popular Japanese myth, the cause of earthquakes is the giant fish Namazu, often depicted as a giant catfish in woodcuts called Namazu-e. Only the god Kashima can immobilize Namazu and with the help of a heavy capstone, he will push the fish against the foundations of the earth. However the god sometimes got tired or is distracted from his duty, Namazu will use these moments to wiggle his tail, causing an earthquake in the human world.

Beauty is not a word that one readily associates with contemporary art yet it is likely to crop up at the first glance at Anindita Bhattacharya’s works. Anindita has always been interested in using a template that recalls a language forged in the imperial Mughal courts of Delhi, Agra and Lahore.
