IN19 - Indian Wedding: Bride


   
This panel is centred round an Indian bride making the move to Scotland for a new life. Her sadness at leaving home is represented by the tears rolling from her eyes, which take the form of the traditional buta or Paisley pattern. The Water of Leith provides the link between her new surroundings and her cultural tradition, whilst the palki , the traditional transport used to take a bride to her new home, shows that she is continuing her journey into the future. The images around the panel, including the musical instruments, symbolise this bride’s life and the journey she has taken.
