When I see an unclothed woman, I do not see nudity; I see the beauty of nature. Nudity may have been the principal subject of art since prehistoric times, but spoiled by the ugly controversies, nude art even today faces the rage of the so-called protectors of righteousness. People mostly relate the exposure of the body with physical desire which in India equivalent is to a crime.
Indian Female Models
We used to be one of the only cultures that tied sex to the sacred, as can be seen through the epic text Kamasutra and the elaborate art and murals of temples like Khajuraho. It fared us better than the hypersexualisation and objectification of women, not to mention the all-pervading sense of repression that exists in the country today. Subsequently, or perhaps as a result of, our tolerance levels today are at an all-time low, making us extremely sensitive as a country, often offended at the drop of a hat. It is no wonder then that many people use art as an outlet to express and challenge such repressive notions. After all, nothing horrifies the audience more than the female body in all its natural beauty and women owning their own sexuality.
