Presenting for your personal collection a beautiful miniature Yoga art.
This rare painting invites wonder at India’s extraordinary artistic heritage and with it you will feel the magic and spiritual enlightenment of Yoga. The art of Yoga constitutes a visual archive that attempts to capture one or several of its attributes, as a philosophical school, a Hindu tradition, a spiritual science and an exercise regimen.
Reflecting the importance of the body in yoga as well as the centrality of the figure in Indian art, yogic representations center largely on the human form.
This modern artwork features a Sikh yogi (or Udasi) meditating in lotus posture (padmasana) with his eyes raised in inward concentration. To depict the Udasi and the intensity of his practice, the artist mobilized the flaring forms, crisp contours, and bold palette of eighteenth-century paintings from Mankot, a small kingdom in the Himalayan foothills of northwest India, accentuating the centered stability and upward energy of the ascetic’s posture by echoing its form in the curved shape of the reed hut.
