In the era gone by, woman trained in music and dance were held in high regard. Courtesans, secular counterparts to devdasis, were deeply involved in the arts of music, singing and dancing, often forming the nuclei of cultivated circles.

Working on the art from of batik, where each application of wax is followed by dyeing in various colours, the craftsman has brilliantly captured the mood and form of the female playing the monochord instrument called the sarangi. The charming woman is a courtesan, evident from her jewellery and the plume that she wears on the head. She wears yards of cloth but her curvaceous body and fine limbs are appreciable even beneath them. Her dense and curling tresses are her crowning glory. The various folds and the pleats of the elaborate garment are clearly depicted. The two ends of her garment are tied high at her waist.

Musical instruments provide us with historical information on the socio-religious tradition of a people. The bowed monochords have not achieved the status of the plucked ones like sitar and sarod, but they produce melody as pleasurable as the latter. The sarangi that the lady holds has a fingerboard above and the resonator below.

The colour scheme of the batik work is sober, yet not dull. The background is pale with mauve crackle. Colour mauve is also used to shade the white saree of the lady.

Ramakrishna, Australia
I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
Tina, USA
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.
