Sikh Art fetches £92k in London auction!

A perfect example of the rapidly increasing value of Sikh Art, is the above piece, a town scene of Amritsar which fetched just over £92,000 at auction in April 2016!

It's a classic rags-to-riches story as the original was bought from a car boot sale by a London Taxi driver 30 years ago for £40. It was taking up too much room at home, and so the owner took it to Roseberys auction house in London for a valuation. 

The artwork is from the 19th century, and colourfully depicts the scene of the walled city of Amritsar with the Sri Harmandir Sahib (The Golden Temple) clearly visible in the background. We have Hindu's praying in a Mandir, Muslims in a Mosque, women are seen spinning cotton and dancing, and you get a real sense of the hustle and bustle of Amritsar. 
 

Sicque Art

Not all of us can afford to purchase such an item, but this is exactly where Sicque Art comes in, producing unique fine art quality reproductions, at a fraction of the price, but just as collectible.

Our first print, "Akali Nihang on Horseback" is a perfect example of this - from the collection of the British Library, limited to 50 pieces, printed using archival inks on fine art paper and hand finished with 24ct Gold.

Be proud and invest in your own heritage and culture, and start your own collection today!

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...
