Batik is clearly one of the most complex amongst textile arts. All parts of the design that are to resist a certain colour are waxed. Thus starts a process of waxing and dyeing till all required colours are obtained.

In this batik we find a clear shift from traditional theme and colours. The theme represents simple beauty of womanhood and the colours chosen are mauve, neon green, orange and pink besides others. The artist views the lady standing in the arched window in the dark, silent night. She stands in a frontal stance, looking sideways. The turn of her head shows the sharp features in clear profile. The slant of the eyes, the upturned lips, the pointed chin together make the attractive face. Simple and elegant ornaments add to her beauty. Dressed in colourful clothes, She waits for her beloved. The movement of her hands show anxiety as do the restlessness in her glance.

The artist has selected vibrant colours for the protagonist but the background has somber colours depicting bleak situation. The grey of the night and the leafless tree symbolize the lack of exuberance and the full moon shows repressed desires. This is an emotive and aesthetic way of representing a theme.

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.
