Ravinder Reddy (Indian, born 1956), Untitled (Head – Gold), painted and gilded fiberglass, 2003. Gift of The Apollo Society, 1914. Gallery 4

The latest acquisition by the Museum’s collecting group The Apollo Society, Indian artist Ravinder Reddy’s monumental painted fiberglass head immediately demands attention. With his fusion of contemporary pop art and Hindu sculptural tradition, Reddy creates a union of the ideal goddess and the individual woman. The frontality of the head and its wide, staring eyes evoke a timelessness similar to ancient sculpture.
