Temples are an important part of Hindu religion. Their erection is considered a reintegration of Parapet (first man of creation, like Adam) enabling him to continue his creative activity. Here, this theme has been coupled with batik, a rare and exotic art form. Batik, like any other art, is all about creativity, dexterity and patience. The temple, the main theme of batik belongs to Surya (sun) and Soma (moon), the gods of nature. The worship of the sun is very ancient and some scholars hold the view that all religions had their origin in sun worship. Vedic Aryans loved the brighter side of life and hence the sun was an important object of worship. In Hindu mythology, the moon is a male deity. It is generally called chandra or Soma. Various color differentiation, which signify the kashas, or sheaths divide the temple, which represents the human body. The innermost chamber of the temple is the 'Garbha-Griha' where the idol is consecrated. The deity residing in the Garbha Griha, Surya and Som here represents the Atman or the soul.

Red color and shades belonging to the same family are extensively used here. Symbolically, red represents the gods. Black and Yellow form the color contrast in a very aesthetic way. The crinkle, characteristic feature of batik is visible more clearly on the lighter colors. Sticking to symbolic color representation the sun god is done in yellow and the moon god is white/silver. The foreground has the temple wall, one in each color of the gods. There is amazing balance in composition as well as color.

As ever, brilliant price and service.
Howard, UK.
The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

I just wanted to say that this is I think my 3rd (big) order from you, and the last two times I received immaculate service, the books arrived well and it has been a very pleasant experience. Just wanted to say thanks for your efficient service.

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
