Tar Man 6 is a mummification of one of the working men that struggle through the war-torn landscape of Kashmir. The routine with which they go about their laboured work in extremes temperatures is testament to the will of the people to contribute to change. Arora’s figure appears rooted to the spot, coated in a thick skin of tar smothering his ability to show any expression. The artist is examining the generation of men working on the road side, assigned to the difficult task of reconstruction and repair.
