Brief Description Devyani Krishna's introspection did not demand the use of socially relevant comments or the figurative idiom. Her printmaking journey reflected a rare feminine attempt to fuse the ancient symbolism of various religions with the contemporary demand of self-awareness and its scientific inclinations. This print is part of a series called 'Allah', where she abstracted the calligraphic use of the Persian letters, to create a form to an aniconic religion.
