A spinning top is a toy designed to spin rapidly on the ground, the motion of which causes it to remain precisely balanced on its tip because of its rotational inertia. Such toys have existed since antiquity. Traditionally tops were constructed of wood, sometimes with an iron tip, and would be set in motion by aid of a string or rope coiled around its axis which, when pulled quickly, caused a rapid unwinding that would set the top in motion. Today they are often built of plastic, and modern materials and manufacturing processes allow tops to be constructed with such precise balance that they can be set in motion by a simple twist of the fingers and twirl of the wrist without need for string or rope. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Top Born in 1964, Arpita, the artist of this work, completed her M.V.A. from the Rabindra Bharati University, Kolkata in 1992. She has won several awards, notable among them the Rajya Charukala Exhibition of West Bengal State Government- in 1987, The National scholarship, Govt. of India-1990-1992 & a Grant from "The Pollock-Krasner Foundation Inc.", New-York, U.S.A in 1998-99. She has held several shows at prominent galleries all over India & her works have been collected by major art institutions, such as the Victoria Albert Museum & others..
