International Women's Day is a significant occasion that acknowledges and commemorates the contributions and accomplishments of women worldwide. It also serves as a reminder of the struggles and barriers that women encounter, and highlights the ongoing work required for gender equality. In her artwork, Ashima Kumar captures the essence of women's strength, resilience, and beauty through her 'Woman' Series.

Through this series, Ashima explores the varied nature of women, comparing them to natural symbols such as horses, lotuses, peacocks, and doves, which represent various aspects of femininity. The horse is frequently regarded as a powerful and independent creature, symbolising the strength and freedom that women embody. Women, like horses, are persistent, resilient, and capable of overcoming obstacles. On the other hand, the lotus is a symbol of purity and enlightenment, representing the innate goodness and kindness that women possess. This natural symbol also reminds us of the importance of nurturing and cultivating our inner beauty.

The peacock is a symbol of beauty and grace, reflecting the elegance and poise of women. Women possess an alluring charm and captivating aura, much like the peacock's beautiful feathers, that can light up any room. Finally, the dove is a symbol of peace and harmony, representing the compassionate and nurturing nature of women. Women have an innate ability to create and maintain harmony in their relationships, communities, and the world around them.

Ashima's artwork employs natural patterns and colours, adding playfulness and whimsy while expressing the depth of women's emotions. The women depicted in her art are steadfast like mountains, gentle like the breeze, and nurturing like the earth itself. They embody the inner strength, resilience, and ability to effect change of girls and women everywhere.

Overall, Ashima's use of natural symbols in her artwork allows us to appreciate the diversity and complexity of women. The consistent use of tree and water symbols further highlights the grounded and adaptable nature of women. Through her artwork, Ashima reminds us of the importance of recognising and celebrating the power and resilience of women, not only on International Women's Day but every day. Let us continue to work towards a world where women are valued, respected, and empowered to reach their full potential.
