The theme of home is conveyed through my Indian background.

I portray 3 significant Hindu Gods: Parvati, Shiva and Ganesha.

Parvati is the Hindu Goddess of fertility, love, marriage and children, contributing towards the theme of home.

Shiva is the Hindu God and husband of Parvati. He is the supreme being in Hindu religion who creates, protects, and transforms the universe while destroying evil.

Lastly, Ganesha is the product of Parvati and Shiva. He represents the remover of obstacles which I feel is important because ‘home’ can refer to a safe spot of comfort.
