Carved in glazed ceramic relief, this triangular pillar sculpture recalls the parable of the Two Birds from the Mundaka Upanishad, one of the ancient Hindu scriptures.
“Upon the same tree there are two birds of beautiful plumage, most friendly to each other, one eating the fruits, the other sitting there calm and silent without eating — the one on the lower branch eating sweet and bitter fruits in turn and becoming happy and unhappy, but the other one on the top, calm and majestic; he eats neither sweet nor bitter fruits, cares neither for happiness nor misery, immersed in his own glory.” (Vivekananda)
