In Indian religions, the right-facing swastika symbol stands for sunrise, day, wellbeing and life. It is contrasted by the left-facing sauwastika, which represents sunset, decline of life, night, misery and death. Subodh Gupta had two ceiling fans in the form of the swastika and the sauwastika produced. The blades were each milled on the milling machine in polyurethane foam, laminated with epoxy laminate and glass fiber, sanded, and sprayed in black and in white.

The mounts for the fans were produced in steel in the metal flow forming technique.
