In the cacophony of the India Art Fair, it is easy to miss work that is not very large in scale or subtle in its approach, but at the artist collective, Britto Arts Trust which is showcasing artwork from Bangladesh, one could not but notice the poetic and poignant work of artist Promotesh Das Pulak. His combination of guns and roses drew the attention of this art critic. The ornate silver gun is punctuated with white roses where the bullet chamber usually is. The beautifully crafted roses are made from the shola plant, native to Bangladesh and Bengal.
