GALLERIES :

The are indoor galleries are a grand feast for the eye, one that will take you to the fountain of nature’s creativity and man’s aesthetic interaction with it. In this genre of Sculpture the human artist and the artist in Nature are in a dynamic aesthetic partnership.

  1. No carving or chiselling is done. The innate form is identified and brought out, suitably mounted and named. As the Nobel Laureate Sir James Mirlees during his visit to Prakriti Bhavan commented in the visitor’s book ”Here finding is creatio”.
  2. Nearly 100 items are on display and many more in reserve.
  3. Narratives of the vision of Prakiti Bhavan written by Subrata Basu are on display along many of the sculptures.
  4. Photographs of insitu natural forms that look like surrealistic paintings are also on display.

The sculpture items are by Nature and Subrata Basu the sculptor. The nature art- photographs are by Pradip Dutta & Pulak Halder.

Vision:
A contemplative vision of the oneness of Nature, man and the universal mind where the individual self finds liberation by merging into the universal self while the universal self finds liberation in manifesting itself in individual forms galore. A transformative experience within one self. This is the philosophy of nature aesthetics that Prakriti Bhavan seeks to promote for kinship around Mother Nature. Narratives of the vision of Prakiti Bhavan written by Subrata Basu are on display along many of the sculptures. Book and other publications are available at the site.
