Desires, longing, needs and wants, drive our lives. This piece of art speaks about our desire to love and be loved in return. Love, both physical and spiritual is necessary for a fulfilling life. Wise men have said that through physical love we can attain the love of the supreme being. Yet, there are moral codes and societal norms which curtail our capacity to love one another. This artwork is dedicated to those courageous people who have martyred themselves at the alter of love, because they believed that the power of love conquers all, though they met heavy and violent opposition from society at large.
