Manthiram is a forty page graphic history. It presents a series of interconnected vignettes of the historic Mannar pearl fisheries, off the coast of Sri Lanka. It explores humanity’s enchantment with the sea and its treasures, and the charms and rituals with which we attempt to commune with it.

The project culminated in an exhibition at NYUAD’s Project Space.
