Valay Shende Mumbai Dabbawala Sculpture

This was a fascinating sculpture in the Palais Beaux des Arts de Lille. Created with wristwatches, the figure of the Dabbawala brings lunch to the many Mumbai office workers, and has been bringing it for the last 125 years. In a celebration of the tradition, artist Valay Shende created the sculpture who carries a gold plated fibreglass stomach.

Interestingly the camera brings out the features of the face that the human eye cannot easily detect in the sculpture.

Definitely time for tiffin.
