4 x 6 inches original miniature Linocut print on archival Canson paper (185 gsm)
Very limited edition of 12 prints
Hand-drawn, hand-carved, hand-pulled
This print is a depiction of the ancestral house of Swami Vivekananda, the famous Indian monk and philosopher from my city Calcutta. It shows the special part of the courtyard called the 'Thakur Dalan' in Bengali, where prominent Hindu festivals would take place, and the festival that I chose to 'celebrate' in this work is Durga Puja, the biggest annual festival in Bengal, marking the arrival of the Goddess Durga, and her victorious power over evil!
This particular artwork is of great personal significance to me, as it marries together Durga Puja, a festival that resonates with me very deeply, with Vivekananda, a constant inspiration.
Hand-drawn, hand-carved, and hand-pulled, this work has been created with a single block of linoleum. I have created this second sepia-coloured version with a touch of green ink which was filled-in by hand, after the first black-and-white version (available here: https://www.artfinder.com/product/swamijis-thakur-dalan/)
