Tiffany Singh: Indra’s bow
Spices, herbs, gemstones, and other natural materials believed to have healing properties are arranged here in a rainbow, a vision of hope and new beginnings. Fair-trade bells hang on the ribbons, and below them is a salt mandala – a symbol of cleansing and ritual.

Indra’s bow encourages us to acknowledge the spectrum of colours present in our everyday lives. The title refers to the Hindu god Indra, who used a rainbow to destroy evil. The work is also inspired by the Hindu festival of Diwali, which celebrates the triumph of light over darkness.
