Varanasi Batik Wall Hanging Art — 72" Kali Ma Goddess Collection


These exclusive Varanasi Batik Wall Hanging Art pieces are hand-painted by a four-generation family of artisans in Varanasi, India. Each Batik is entirely handcrafted through a process of waxing the intricate design, dyeing the fabric, and removing the wax to reveal the final creation. The result is an amazing work of art that adds a sacred element to any home or workspace, and can act as a wonderful instrument for meditation and prayer.

Our Kali Ma Goddess collection celebrates the fierce aspect of the Divine Mother. This Hindu goddess of creation, preservation, and destruction is known to be the most compassionate of the goddesses. Her love is so fierce, it destroys our attachments so we can realize liberation. She is surrounded by red hibiscus flowers. In her left hands, she holds a sword to destroy ignorance, and a head symbolizing liberation from ego. Beneath her feet is Lord Shiva, representing Mother Nature’s greatness over humans—of which even Shiva’s power is no match.

You’ll see that the same overall Kali image is offered in a different color/pattern combination, each with its own unique Kali name. But since each Varanasi Batik Wall Hanging Art is an individually handcrafted creation, the Kali Ma Goddess Batik you choose will likely vary slightly from the image shown. Hanging materials not included; display ideas listed at the bottom.


SIZE:  Approximately 50" W x 72" L

MATERIAL:  100% cotton

ORIGIN:  Handcrafted in India

CARE:  Feather dust. Do not wash, dry clean, or hang in direct sunlight.

DISPLAY OPTIONS:  Hanging materials are not included. Display options include using small hanging rings, Velcro strips® (with softer portions attached to the Batik), or a ‘Museum Mount’ for the most professional display.

To create your own Museum Mount, you’ll need a needle, thread, stapler, and staples suitable for wood, plus black fabric and a wooden frame that’s approximately a ½" larger than the Batik Wall Hanging Art on each side. Stretch black fabric over the frame, and staple fabric to cover the frame. Hand-stitch Batik to the frame fabric, turning the rough edges under, for the most professional look.
