Susan Stronge and Kamini Sawhney look at the popular Tipu's Tiger and a textile souvenir from MAP's collection, unearthing the symbolism and hidden meaning behind both objects and shedding light on the convergence and conflict between two cultures.
Linking collections around the world, Museums Without Borders is a unique digital collaboration between MAP and institutions in India and across the world. Ranging from six to ten minutes, each episode in this series juxtaposes an artwork from MAP with an object from a partner museum exploring commonalities and differences in style, subject or narrative.
