Installation is sized, priced and produced on a project-specific basis.

Shahzia Sikander is a New York-based artist whose work depicts themes of cultural, social, and political histories through techniques associated with traditional Indo-Persian miniature painting. Sikander's The Singing Spheres is composed of hundreds of small icons based on the hair style of female worshipers - known as gopi - of the Hindu god Krishna. Each hand-painted form is unique but becomes anonymous when subsumed by the movement and pattern of the group.
