Shambhavi Singh (b. 1966, Patna, India) lives and works in Delhi, India. Earth Song is an homage to farmers and rural life. The four-sided Corten steel totem combines: Purabiya, the easterly wind, represented with butterflies, repeated on two sides; Saundhi Saundhi, fragrant earth, represented by flowers and two sickles; and Chidiya Udd!, flying birds, represented as a flock of up to 200 half-moon shapes.
