Batik is a tedious art form requiring numerous coats of dyeing and waxing till the desired result is achieved. Since one shade is dyed over the other, the result is more harmonious than in painting.

What we see here is a portrait of a majestic elephant belonging to the royal filkhana. Jet black in colour against the background of burnt Sienna, the pachyderm looks elegant in movement. Holding an ornamented fly whisk (chauri) in its trunk, it marches on. A rich parasol-like head gear rests on its head, reaching down its forehead. The two tusks are also fitted with golden caps at the edges and golden rings as we go up Tassels hang down the ears; its feet are adorned with thick anklets. The overcloth is of silk and brocade completing the ostentatious ornamentation.

The colour combination of the animal and the background is too rich to be ignored. Excessive use of golden colour adds to the richness. What is also attractive about the painting is that the portrait is far from static. The positioning of the legs is such that it shows brisk movement.

Altogether, an art work to enliven up a staid and dull wall.

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 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.
