Untitled
17.8 x 26.3 inch (h x w)
Brush and ink on paper

In a powerful subversion of the image of the ten-armed Durga, Chittaprosad portrays the Indian state – a mixture of politician and soldier – as an enemy of the people. He tramples with his spiked boots on a field strewn with dead bodies. In stark contrast, a powerful female figure dominates the other side of his frame - a common feature in Chittaprosad’s representations of the people’s struggle. The caricature returns to one of his oft-deployed strategies of rendering protesting masses in humanised detail, reserving the satirical distortions for the figures of oppression. Printed in mouthpieces of the left-leaning organizations, Chittaprosad’s caricatures reached wide circulation and helped in the creation of a more politically aware public sphere.
