Dreaming of Paradise

the divine depiction of a female tailor

Durga on the altar at home, the last saree Mohwatie designed and made

Mohwatie Ramautarsing (1949-2002) was well-known for her tailor skills in and outside Rotterdam. After her death her daughter rediscovered the valuable treasure of Mohwatie where craftmanship and devotion come together.

During her last years she designed and made 254 miniature saree’s and 100 colorful veils, the Indian garment, to dress the goddesses figurines on her altar at home. This is a ritual which is familiar in Indian Hindu temples. Hinduism and spirituality always have been a part of her search for answers to universal life-questions.

Mohwatie Ramautarsing created in all her freedom her depiction of Divinity.
