Envy Suppressor, 2019

Envy Suppressor by Aman Khanna.

Aman Khanna's Envy Suppressor is a unique ceramic sculpture that forms part of his Claymen series: a continuing exploration of the nature of identity, selfhood and what it means to be human in the world.

Each Envy Suppressor is hand sculpted from clay. Khanna creates unique expression for each, visually demonstrating the suppression of "one's inner and outer evil", using a simple series of universal features to create a profound sense of character which is immediately appealing.

The use of unadorned clay bears particular significance for the artist. Khanna notes that "clay is a simple, everyday raw material used by everyone. Sun-dried, half-baked in an open fire - clay is omnipresent and yet individual in the way one uses it."

As Khanna observes, "Let the Claymen look at you, and use them to look at yourself."

Handmade in India. Has a hollow back to hang on the wall. 

Please note that due to the unique and handmade character of these designs it is not possible to specify a particular Envy Suppressor when placing your order. There might be a slight variation in size and expression, please see images.
