"Rajasthani Woman (India)", 2019
Artist: John Peaspanen
About the Artwork: The Rajasthani are an Indo-Aryan ethnic group native to the Rajasthan region of India. They are known for their rich, gem-studded gold and silver jewelry, as well as for their similar ornamentation of guns, swords, knives, shields, doors and thrones. Sadly, any written record of the origins of this group was lost in antiquity.
“I created this series of indigenous portraits to celebrate the diversity and unique tribal beauty found across the globe. Societal ideals and ideas of what is beautiful vary among cultures. One group’s perfection can often seem extreme to others. However, it is in these unique displays that we see that we are all not so different, after all. We are all ONE TRIBE.” —John Peaspanen
