"It was a strange feeling waking up knowing that one day I will die. Like most people, I have always known but it had never before been so clear to me that death is ot a myth, it will occur. Half asleep, I had an out of body experience. I was looking down on my lifeless body in a coffin." -- p. .

The woodcuts are on handmade paper made of cotton rag and abaca. Towards the end of the beating, the artist added pieces of old hand woven cushion covers to the pulp. These were cushion covers which her parents had used in their home in India. She incorporated the covers' embroidered design into the woodcuts, and added a small remaining piece of the embroidery in each book. -- Vamp & Tramp Booksellers website
"The inside of the panel depicts a rakshasa, a demon from Indian mythology, amid flames and smoke and images of scurrying figures. The rakshasas of mythology were enemies of men who had hideous deformities and were monstrous in appearance. They represented forces of evil that attacked people and gods. Although the attacks of September 11 certainly had known perpetrators, in this work I have tried to present the event in more general terms, as representative of the evil that human beings are capable of doing. In most of my work, as in my life, I try to integrate two very different cultures, those of India and America. This is partly what made me choose the image of a rakshasa as a symbol of the human capacity for evil. I also wanted to use a symbol that dates back many centuries, to show that this evil has existed throughout history, and its horror endures." -- from the artist's website
