qutub complex ruin

The Qutb complex refers to an array of monuments and buildings at Mehrauli in Delhi, India, the Qutub Minar standing out as the most famous.

Twenty-seven previous Jain temples had been destroyed and their materials reused to construct the minar and other monuments of the complex.

This resulted in the creation of unique, Indo-Muslim architecture, blending Jainism and Hinduism gods with the symbols and architectural designs of Islam.

This insightful illustration of Qutub complex ruin, which speaks through its brokenness, has been rendered using glass-marking pencil on the cartridge.

The artwork has been an effort to portray the stone surface texture of its glorious past.
