The drawer/shrine cherishes a cycle of life that is sustained by women back home in Bangladesh for Nasreen. This cycle begins from the heart as it trickles through the earthen jars of water and flourishes in a shape of earthen roses. I learned from this multi-level story that women are the back-bone of the family life. They look after their children, maintain their homes and are continuously having to carry jars of water.
