During the Sikh period, the visual art music etc. flourished and it goes without saying that any development of cultural environment postulates peace, prosperity and aesthetic taste of the patron. Paintings of Sikh army officers were popular. This was due to the fact that the Sikh feudals, emotionally flattered by their victories, cherished to be glorified.

This painting shows a cadre of the 15th Bengal Native Infantry. It is a prototype of a Sikh from Ludhiana, with a massive turban, red and yellow striped, as part of the uniform. The moustaches are curled up and the beard is uncut and rolled up next to the jaw line. He wears a red coat with green front and trimmings. A belt tightens at the waist. On the left side of the chest hang the decorations, accorded a place of pride. A red sash seems from there, across his body and towards the back. He wears loose black trousers, tucked in boots. Attached to his uniform are two straps to hold the sheath of the sword that he holds. Lightly held in his left hand is the hilt of the sword, but the artist has made the lower part of the sword sheath look like a baton.

The lines of the portrait are clear cut and the colours used are basic red, green and black. The officer regally stands alone, with no need for a background.

This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
