FullSizeRender-5Kalpataru: The Wishing Tree // Sarthak & Sahil // 2015

Walking into the main entrance of the V&A Museum you are confronted with bright swirling colors of green, orange and yellow and a lime green parrot. What is it? It is Sarthak & Sahil’s Kalpataru: The Wishing Tree. The painted brass pieces stand separately but serve to resemble the herb basil. There is a tradition during Diwali celebrations to decorate the basil leaves, similar to people decorating a tree for Christmas. After all, it is the holiday season!
