Sari

A Dutch lady living in Bangladesh commissioned Petra to create a sculpture about her life in three countries in Asia: India, Pakistan and Bangladesh. She loved the Frangipani flower, which grows in all three countries. She also loved the sari, the most used dress of the women. These became the sources of inspiration: the Frangipani can be seen in the shape of the dress. Here Petra used three leaves instead of the original five, as they represent the three countries of residence. The artist added more details in the sculpture, like a footprint of Bangladesh to express that the lady left her footprint in hearts of people from the three countries.

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