> DESCRIPTION

Charles Darwin had given various postulates of his well known theory some of which are as follows:
[i] Favorable conditions allow a population to increase,
[ii] Environmental pressures in time,
[iii] Competition with each other to survive.

In evolutionary theory the survival of only those organisms best able (fittest) to obtain and utilize resources. This phenomenon is the cornerstone of Darwin's theory of evolution by natural selection.

This is the basic theory that is applied to all the species in the universe

The application of this very theory to the human family has revealed that even in the minuscule family consisting of a man and a woman i.e. husband and wife the same traits are prominent.

In the family either the male dominates and the female subordinates as in the majority of cases of the patriarchal system of civilization. In short the beast of burden is the female and the male rules.

This sculpture depicts this very fact.
