Estimated at Rs 1 1.5 crore, the bronze sculpture, like much of Gupta's oeuvre, is defined by the transformation of familiar objects of daily use into metaphorical symbols that offer insights into aspects of modern life.
Also featured in the sale will be Bharti Kher's 'The Walls Have Ears' (1999), estimated at Rs 5070 lakh.
One of Kher's first works to explore the bindi motif through painting, this work takes the viewers into the interiors of homes, using the "painted-collage" format to examine the contradictions and complexities of identity.
"The Amaya Collection is testament to an enduring passion for owning and collecting art.
"Amrita Jhaveri has amassed one of the most significant collections of contemporary Indian art in the world and we are extremely pleased to be able to offer these works at our auction. We believe the sale will have a significant impact on the contemporary Indian art market," Dinesh Vazirani, Saffronart CEO and Co-Founder said.
Other highlights include conceptual artist Shilpa Gupta's 'BlindStars StarsBlind', an animated light installation from 2008 estimated at Rs 1015 lakh, and photographer Dayanita Singh's 'Blue Book #32' (2007), estimated at Rs 810 lakh.
Singh's work is significant for being part of the series that marked Singh's first venture into colour photography.
"The selection captures a particular moment in time from the late 1990s to the mid-2000s when there was a great sense of optimism in the art world.
"This sale is a snapshot of those happy days. The landscape and the human body are themes that emerge through the collection," Jhaveri said.
