Queen Bee - We Live Thanks to You

Mosaic by Sara Guberti at the Kala Ghoda Arts Festival

Rampart Row, Kala Ghoda

Adhering to this year's theme "Elements of Nature", Sara Guberti applies her usual aethetic style to represent prosperity and appreciate the incessant, laborious and near invisible effort of the woman that is perhaps most identical to that of the profound labour of the bees.

Our lives, as is well known, depend on the existence and labour of the bees. The Queen Bee is the representation of a bee within a circle of mosaic gold that depicts the value of the precious and incessant labour of the bee. The circle is surrounded by large flowers that are used in temples and rituals of worship as well as a offering of prosperity in India. Our lives are indebted to this incessant labour, without which the human race would surely succumb.

Sara Guberti is an Italian artist who works in India and Italy. She paints and works on Byzantine style mosaics. For many years, she has been working and collecting material for a project that sees as protagonists black female dieties by collecting stories, pieces of ancient memory and reconstructing the true potential of the feminine form that has been manipulated, hidden and repressed in various worlds and cultures.

Sara strives to represent the power of women: that which is powerful and silent, that which is concealed in dispassionate efforts that are often not recognized throughout life and constrains the soul.
