India: The flood and Manu’s fish
Wednesday, February 20, 2013
Every culture has a flood story. India's is the story of Manu, an original good man who rescues a tiny fish from being eaten. The fish grows magically larger and tells him to build a boat. When the flood comes, the fish pulls Manu and his family to a new land, the land of India. We painted Manu's fish red in a blue sea using only three colors: ultramarine blue, vermillion red and lemon yellow.
