In Pictures: When Gods & Subjects From Old Paintings Take Selfies
Each one of us is smitten with this infamous habit of clicking selfies. But what would happen if the Gods we worship got addicted too? Sounds weird right? But artist Ardita Das has not only creatively imagined what it would be like, but also portrayed it really well. This Pune-based artist has re-imagined old paintings of Gods and has creatively brought this bizarre thought to life. She has photoshopped the pictures and handed over smartphones to our Gods, making them do what this generation does best, click selfies.
As strange as it sounds, the photos are equally hilarious to look at.
