#WitchWeek2022 Day 5

“Ancestor”, by Bharti Kher, Central Park, NYC, 2022.

I shouldn’t be astonished by the confluence of events in my life in NYC, but here’s the latest surprise.

“Ancestor,” Bharti Kher’s magical statue, recently installed at the southern end of Central Park in NYC, awaited me as I walked across Manhattan, planning these Witch Week posts and wondering how I’d illustrate them. Finding this was my reward for walking instead of taking the cross-town bus.

And so, what better image to tempt you to visit Calmgrove’s blog, where Mallika Ramachandra (one of the participants in the discussion yesterday of Black Water Sister) takes a turn as guest blogger. She reviews a 19th century classic of Indian literature, Chandrakanta, by Devaki Nandan Khatri.

And a huge thank you to the New York Council on the Arts/Public Art Fund and to other foundations for their commitment to making art available to all.
