I came across a curious story that Nandalal Bose had nearly encountered a tiger in Bagh caves, while camping there. So for me this selection of a tiger was significant. Keeping up with this idea I wanted to send Nandalal Bose a tiger, given his interest in pan Indian art I figured a mask i had encountered in a monastery in Kalimpong will make a befitting response. Thus i have used the pun “bagher bodole Bagh” which means tiger for a tiger in Bengali. So as to relate to the fun, spontaneous And observant personality of “mashtarmoshai” that reflects through these.
