About the Shakuntala Logo

This line drawing is an attempt to express the spirit of the woman for whom this play is named. The hands are in the "mudra" of ketakikusume, a flower. The extended fingers of the mudra hold a heart with the first letter of Shakunatala's name in Sanskrit.
This woman, connected to nature, offers her heart as a sign of hope amidst despair, and as such remains a flower for all who look upon her.
Come see our production to find out why some of the greatest artists in the world have fallen in love with this woman over the centuries.
"Shakuntala and the Ring of Recognition" runs Feb 11-28 at La MaMa.
