About the Creation

In “Brass Tiffin,” the dance of watercolor brings to life the elegance of dabbas—brass tiffin carriers, a cultural emblem of shared meals across Asia and the Caribbean. Each stroke blends impressionism and realism, capturing the gleam of brass and the practical beauty of these lunch boxes. Originating in India, they have journeyed across continents, finding homes in Pakistan, Cambodia, Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Fiji, Mauritius, Guyana, Suriname, and Trinidad and Tobago. The artwork showcases the intricate design, highlighting the bottom compartment for charcoal, a nod to the timeless tradition of keeping meals warm and hearts connected.
