History of the Object
The 1971 war of liberation is undoubtedly the most momentous even in the long history of the Bengalee nation. The war not only led to the creation of a new nation; it also helped forge a national identity, removing the barriers that hindered its cultural expressions. The victory against a colonial force meant rejuvenation and the renewal of the spirit of creativity, which lies at the root of all literary and cultural productions. It is not surprising therefore, that the war of liberation has such a prominent place in our art and literature. The post – 1971 art scene is one of great zest and creative upsurge – the impetus being provided by the war of liberation. A group of Artist from the Chittagong also inspired and created this large mural painting styled “Abahaman Bangla Bangali” in 1972.
