Well it's finally here!
After months of work, I've finally managed to get everything finished and have for sale our first Fine Art Print, "Akali Nihang on Horseback".
I always found the image on which the print is based to be quite unique. Most of the time when I've come across traditional art showing Nihang Singhs, it has always tended to show them in a poor light - see the below image from the collection of the British Library.
Here the Nihang Singhs clothes are ragged, his horse is malnourished, skeletal etc.
In our print, however, the Akali Nihang Singh is fully upright with a spear in his hand, his horse is virile, and even his shastars (weapons) are made out of gold!
When I first saw the image it immediately appealed to me and evoked the Saint-Soldier, Miri-Piri ideal which Sikhs aspire to. I imagined it in front of me, as a constant reminder of ideal of the Khalsa.
