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.

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.
Gina, USA
