Sita’s Ramayana

Samhita Arni, Moyna Chitrakar Sita’s Ramayana shifts the point of view of the epic – the saga of a heroic war – to bring a woman’s perspective to this familiar tale. Narrated by the heroine Sita, it is a powerful meditation on the fate of women, as they become pawns in the wars between men and kingdoms. Patua artist Moyna Chitrakar and book designer Jonathan Yamakami deftly rework the traditional scroll form to create a dramatic visual narrative. Samhita Arni’s quiet yet reflective text complements Moyna’s startling colour and line.
