Amrita Sher-Gil,Three Girls.1935.
Through portraying these three women as unavailable, not offering themselves or their homeland to the management of the colonial gaze, Indian artist Amrita Sher-Gil recovers her figures from being defined and objectified as “the exotic other”. She references Gaugin’s Tahitian Women portraits, where he reduces the local Polynesian women to submissive exotic beings that exist for the purpose of offering up their bodies and the bounties of Tahiti for the benefit of the viewer’s dominant sense of self.

asked by Anonymous:
why d o muslims wear bindis if its for hindus?

In South Asia there are cultural practices that existed long before religion especially before Islam made its way to that part of the world. Also Muslims in south Asia have a distinct way of practicing because of the culture we have as south Asians. Hinduism and Sikhism definitely have influenced the way Islam is practiced. So its common to see Muslims/Agnostics/Christians wearing bindis.
