Peace & Prosperity heralds escalation in artistic pursuits. During the Sikh period, art reached its pinnacle in Lahore, Amritsar, Jind, Patiala etc. It had a unique style, standing in its own right, characterizing its own Punjabi manifestations, reflecting colour scheme and ornamentation.

Sobriety is the key note of this painting. Executed in monochromes, it is a regal miniature. The pachyderm from the royal stables is adorned with ornaments par excellence - the satin overcloth, the metallic head ornament, the festoons etc. Its rear body is almost concealed beneath the rich cloth. The loose skin on the animals fore limbs or the rings around its trunk are cleverly achieved.

In a superbly crafted seat are seated princes from the royal household. Calm & dignified in their demeanour, they are a picture of regal grace. Behind them, a man stands with a huge umbrella, a symbol of royalty. The mahout sits in front, goading and guiding the elephant.

On close inspection and observation, we find the design & decoration of the seat quite influenced by contemporary European elements. The posture of the lions placed at the lower edges is not Indian, nor are the spear holding figurines in the front. It clearly shows that by this time, European art had made inroads into the Indian art territory and was here to stay.

Testimonials

I love your site and although today is my first order, I have been seeing your site for the past several years. Thank you for providing such great art and books to people around the World who can't make it to India as often as we would like.
Rupesh
Heramba Ganapati arrived safely today and was shipped promptly. Another fantastic find from Exotic India with perfect customer service. Thank you. Jai Ganesha Deva

I ordered Padmapani Statue. I have received my statue. The delivering process was very fast and the statue looks so beautiful. Thank you exoticindia, Mr. Vipin (customer care). I am very satisfied.
Hartono, Indonesia
Very easy to buy, great site! Thanks
Ilda, Brazil
Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.

Another three books arrived during the last weeks, all of them diligently packed. Excellent reading for the the quieter days at the end of the year. Greetings to Vipin K. and his team.
