Presenting a superb historical painting of Sikh Guru Har Gobind, the 6th Guru & a man of God.
The great Guru, who played such a crucial role in the history of Sikhism, being the one who decided to don the twin swords of piri and miri (spiritual and earthly sovereignty) in defiance of the all-powerful Mughal authority, is seen here as any of his predecessors: a man of God, seated quietly by himself, holding a long string of prayer beads in one hand, thinking. No signs of royalty surround him: no attendants waving a fly-whisk appear, no horses are being led before him; even the imperial hawk, which one knows he carried on his hand and which identifies him in so many ways, makes no appearance. It is just a quiet moment that this art captures.
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. It is elegant in design, limited in supply and historically significant!, the paintings stately elegance will make an impressive addition and provide a noble impression to your cherished art collection.
The original art was done in the Punjab hills in late 18th century and currently resides in the Government Museum and Art Galley, Chandigarh, India.
