Varanasi Batik Wall Hanging Art — Lakshmi 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 Lakshmi Goddess Collection honors the pure abundance aspect of the Divine Mother. Her name in Sanskrit means ‘She who leads to one’s goal’, and she is one of the most well-known of the Hindu goddesses. Lakshmi brings wealth, prosperity, love, beauty, health and joy. And, each of her four hands symbolizes one of the four aspects of life: Dharma (duty), Kāma (desire), Artha (material wealth), and Moksha (liberation). She is shown in our Lakshmi Goddess wall hanging collection sitting in padmasana (‘lotus pose’) on a lotus throne, holding a lotus in each hand, and with a vessel of overflowing coins in her lap.

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

SIZE:  Approximately 35"W x 37"H

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 half inch 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.
