This Sikh painting of Guru Nanak (1469-1539), the founder of the Sikh faith, will make an impressive addition and provide a noble impression to your cherished art collection.
This is a portrait painting depicting Guru Nanak who sits meditating, immersed in thoughts of the Formless One.
What is unique about this artwork is that the artist has taken the holiest of words from different faiths and wrapped the great Guru’s noble figure in them. On close examination of the robe one can see that it is inscribed all over with calligraphy. It is said that the writings are in Arabic characters with verses of the Quran as well as the Guru’s own great composition, the Japji.
With its soft coloring and clean, crisp lines, the painting is filled with delicate touches. This is no routine work but one done with great feeling and palpable presence of thought.
The meticulousness in this drawing is exquisitely captured with an antique finish.
The original art was done in the Punjab in late 19th century India and currently resides in the Government Museum and Art Gallery, Chandigarh, India.
