Rendered in the Patua art style from West Bengal by Moyna and Joydeb Chitrakar, Tsunami recalls a terrifying event in our common history. This innovative scroll-book transforms dramatic news into a moving and artfully rendered fable. A ballad of loss and of hope, prophecy and wisdom, Tsunami seeks to heal hurt with song and art, calling attention to the persistence of life in death. The first Patua scroll to be rendered into the form of a book, Tsunami is silk-screen-printed by hand.
