Piece of Land 'Piece of Land' is a take on the humanistic desire to claim territory or be territorial. Made with cast iron and mild steel; the metal supplements the rawness of this mortal yearning. Encapsulating the 'never-ceasing', 'ever-increasing' disdain to sharing, Ritesh Meshram aptly construes the intense urge to claim things we don't even own.
