Brighten your day with this charming handmade Batik painting featuring Lord Shiva (Lord of Dance). Shiva which means "The Auspicious One", is also known as Mahadeva ("Great God"), and is one of the main deities of Hinduism.
Lord Shiva is said to be the deity of death and time. He represents the aspect of the Supreme Being (Brahman of the Upanishads) that continuously dissolves to recreate in the cyclic process of creation, preservation, dissolution and recreation of the universe.
Batik is both an art and a craft, which is becoming more popular and well known in the West as a wonderfully creative medium. The art of decorating cloth in this way, using wax and dye, has been practiced for centuries. In India Batik became popular in Shantiniketan, near Calcutta, and has now gone to many parts of India and the world. Batik paintings portray a huge array of themes which include religious themes as well as abstract patterns.
