Where are you from?

India / Canada

What brings you to MIA? Is this your first visit?

Yes.  We were sheltering from a storm and saw this wonderful art.

Why is this your favourite piece in the collection?

I like this piece because it is big with lots going on.  The people are playing drums and I like music and play it.
