Tusk & Crescent

Intro:

In my work, I aim to converge the ideologies of Islam and Hinduism.Through this project, I'd like to create artwork that represents me as a Hindu transitioning into a Muslim and the process of discovering/retaining my identity.

I want to retain my roots as well as embrace and be open minded about Islam so I can keep a positive mindset through this phase. Through the Venn diagram exercise, I kept branching out till I reached a breakthrough. Tusk&Crescent.

Meaning:

Tusk represents the broken tusk Lord Ganesha used to write sacred hymns ( creation ) and the Crescent (Part of the Muslim symbol) symbolises the guiding light in the darkness. Having a name that can describe both Hinduism and Islam in a subtle way really connected with me. 

Deliverable:
