Sari

A Dutch lady in Bangladesh asked Petra to create a sculpture about her life in three countries in Asia, India, Pakistan and Bangladesh. She loved a certain flower, the Frangipani, which grows in all three countries, as well as the sari, the most used dress by the women. Those became the source of inspiration: the Frangipani can be found in the shape of the dress, although here only three leaves were used instead of five, as they represent the three residential countries. Petra added more details in the sculpture, like a footprint of Bangladesh to express that the lady left her footprint in hearts of people of the three countries.

Sari is the only sculpture from which the dress is inspired by a piece of garment.
