Ka Nam bad U Khla (Ka Nam and the Tiger) by Wallam Kupar War

Continuing with the theme, images and characters of the Khasi folktale "Ka Nam bad U Khla" ("Ka Nam and the Tiger") here is a striking painting by @wallamkuparwar which portrays the mother of Ka Nam.
The art piece takes as its centre the experience of the mother of Ka Nam. We see her pregnant and meeting the tiger who would change the fate of her daughter forever. Once again art has taken the responsibility of envisioning a story providing us with a different kind of retelling of a folktale. Thank you @wallamkuparwar for sending this! 😀🙏
