It is estimated that 1.7 million people in the UK live with prosthetic limbs. The earliest recorded suggestion to the notion of prosthetics is the queen Vishpala, in an ancient Indian sacred collection of Hymns. Vishpala is said to be a female warrior, whose name is from the words viś "village" and bala "strong". The project focuses on the strength of a person as they build their life after injury and in particular living with prosthetics. It focuses on the ways in which their bodies have adapted to the limbs and, along with this, how they have adapted as a human being. I want to create a deeper awareness around the subject and the support giving to those with them.
