Rebel Queen, Mixed media collage, 36 x 36 inches, 2019 by Dust of Saints

About the work:

Painting of Maharani Jind Kaur, a rebel queen from Punjab, who led the first Sikh-Anglo war to rid the country of British rule. I am not a proponent of war, but the brute mentality of the English in India, they reduced the once rich country from riches to rags and ruled by divide and conquer. These wars were justified to free the people of India from tyranny.
