His works illustrate the city's tensions, as overdevelopment threatens natural habitats and infrastructures collapse before they are completed. Panda's mix of mythology and realism points to the evolving nature of Indian identity and experience today. His snake sculpture, "The Cult of Survival," is an expression of the danger in becoming addicted to the cycle of production and consumption in a rapidly changing world. <p><a href="" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Indian Art Jagannath Panda Sculpture Asian Art Objects Asian Art Museum f05d1b2ae6146dfd Wed, 20 Jun 2012 23:47:41 +0000 Asian Art Museum 9517 at
