Sculptor’s Celebration of Women’s Power Inaugurated by Mayor with Flight Launch
A new sculpture called ‘Flight’ was unveiled in Hyderabad on Sunday to celebrate women’s power. The 12-foot stainless steel structure was designed by Sharsha Reddy and took three weeks to be installed at the junction in front of KBR Park. The Mayor of Hyderabad, Gadwal Vijayalakshmi, along with Shubhraa Maheshwari, the chairperson of FICCI FLO Hyderabad, and philanthropist Pinky Reddy, unveiled the sculpture and released balloons into the air.
The base of the sculpture is made from Corten steel, which elevates the structure and adds to its aesthetic appeal. The Mayor praised the sculpture for bringing beauty to KBR Park and its surroundings, and thanked FICCI FLO for their initiative in promoting women’s entrepreneurship.
Shubhraa Maheshwari also expressed her gratitude to the Hyderabad Metropolitan Authority (HMDA), Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC), and Telangana government for their cooperation in promoting women’s empowerment. She described the sculpture as a representation of a female guardian angel and a female warrior, symbolizing women’s strength, safety, and freedom. She also highlighted that Flight was conceptualized, designed, made, and inaugurated by a woman.
Overall, the Flight sculpture is a powerful symbol of women’s empowerment and a testament to the creativity and skill of women artists in Hyderabad.
