|At the Wall Project at Tulsi Pipe Road, Mahim Station, Mumbai |An impromptu drawing of the Khamsa meaning 'five' in Arabic, a Jewish/Islamic hand-shaped talisman used to ward off the evil eye. This piece features the symmetrical Khamsa with an eye on its palm (a common depiction) surrounded by lotuses, waves and seafoam. Yorick Pinto painted most of it and some of the slumdwelling children in the surrounding area helped paint little bits.|

Mira's interpretation of the brief was to bring in elements of nature in a pleasing, balanced design. The curves flow organically and the balance is achieved by using symmetry. Subtle, cool, floral colors inspired by the Indian landscape do not overpower the viewer. A completely Indian look was not required for this inlay, so she stuck to a generic visual language, translating Indian motifs into a modern, more global design.
