“We are all beads strung on the same thread. Each one is different yet all are the same.” –Amma
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 work space, and can act as a wonderful instrument for meditation and prayer.
Of our four Varanasi Batik collections, our Unity in Diversity collection celebrates the richness of our world’s diverse beliefs, as well as the unity of all religions and their worship of the one Sacred Truth of God. Each Batik wall hanging features a beautifully hand-painted Sri Yantra-inspired design in the center, surrounded by symbols from some of our world’s many different faiths, including Hinduism’s Letter Aum (Om), Judaism’s Star of David, Shinto’s Torii Gate, Buddhism’s Wheel of Dharma, Christianity’s Latin Cross, Taoism’s Yin and Yang, and Islam’s Crescent and Star. All of the artistic designs of the religious symbols shown in the Batik are intended to represent unity in our richly diverse world.
Available in a wide variety of beautiful color combinations. Hanging materials not included; display ideas listed at bottom. Since each Varanasi Batik Wall Hanging Art is individually handcrafted, patterns and colors may vary slightly.
SIZE: Approximately 34½" x 34½"
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 frame, and staple fabric to cover frame.
Hand-stitch Batik to the frame fabric, turning the rough edges under, for the most professional look.
