Bangladesh War and more art by Chittaprosad

Bangladesh War
44.2 x 57.7 inch (h x w)
Ink and graphite on paper pasted on paper

Made in the wake of the creation of Bangladesh from East Pakistan during which war approximately three million people were killed by militias, at the centre of this composition is a woman dressed in a
Bengali sari with a brass pot and a sheaf of wheat in each hand—the symbolic mother of the new nation. Another peasant woman kicks the ghost of a soldier in uniform, while a tableau of people,possibly hoping for better circumstances, face murderous tanks and soldiers.
