Painted on this canvas is the universally revered image of Guru Nanak. He
wears a simple, saffron robe and a head scarf; a shawl covering his
shoulders. Dressing reflects the simplicity within. His face shows signs of
aging and wisdom. There is a kind of tranquillity in his eyes, wishing to
spread the same in the strife ridden world. The white beard, though
concealing most of his lower face, not only tell on his age but of years
spent on trying to reform the social and religious ways. His right hand is
raised in a gesture of blessing.
The artist has made tremendous effort in portraying a near real look.
Applying various skin tones, with dashes of pink succeeds in giving a soft
and peaceful look on the guru's face. The background remains hazy, with a
light halo around Nanak's head.
