Batik has developed as an art form rapidly in the past few decades. It is a tedious art as all parts of the design that are to resist certain colors are waxed. Thus starts a process of waxing and dyeing till all the required colors are obtained.

Portrayal of scenes from ordinary life form part of the preferred contemporary themes. Here a man comfortably sits on a platform, relaxing, smoking a 'huqqa.' One leg is folded up while the other hangs down. His appearance and his dress suggests that he belongs to Rajasthan. He wears a dhoti and a short jacket held together only with a string. He wears a huge turban with numerous swirls. The costume is typical of the arid, hot region. An undefined ankle gives the leg a weak appearance. Choice of a perfect shade of brown gives the background a mud hut look. In the niche in the hut lies a pot of water with an inverted glass/tumbler. Depth of the niche and the three dimensionality of the pillar close by is attributed to tones of similar colors mixed and used judiciously.

The huqqa is made deftly of stone found abundantly in the region. The clay pot on top has smoldering embers, an effect wonderfully achieved through touches of pale color. The crackle is a characteristic typical of batik. It gives individuality to each piece of batik and can be extremely effective in some instances such as this.

I bought DVs supposed to receive 55 in the set instead got 48 and was in bad condition appears used and dusty. I contacted the seller to return the product and the gave 100% credit with apologies. I am very grateful because I had bought and will continue to buy products here and have never received defective product until now. I bought paintings saris..etc and always pleased with my purchase until now. But I want to say a public thank you to whom it may concern for giving me the credit. Thank you. Navieta.
