India’s much celebrated designer and Kolkata boy Sabyasachi Mukherjee’s Mickey Mouse poses in front of the Taj Mahal dressed in an embellished sherwani! As part of Disney’s Create 100 global campaign — which celebrates a century of storytelling — the designer was approached to create a unique piece.
Sabyasachi’s creation named ‘Namaste Mickey’ is a mixed-media artwork on handwoven cotto, hand embroidered with metal and bead detailing. It shows the iconic Disney character in ethnic Indian attire and traditional jewellery striking a fun pose with the backdrop of the Taj Mahal. Mickey is framed by a landscape depicting India’s flora and fauna including the tiger — a motif is often found in Sabyasachi’s designs.
In a recent video posted on the designer’s Instagram account, he said, “We wanted to create something like magic realism but done through painting and embroidery.” The ‘Create 100’ campaign — part of it is the creation of 100 unique items — celebrates 100 years of Disney’s storytelling legacy and as part of the campaign will also be donating $1 million globally to Make-A-Wish Foundation, a NGO for children with critical illnesses.
