Is it baba Sukhchen Singh you referr to, as he too has the same jolly appearence- he is pretty tall and broad, but the face makes him into a gentle giant!

There certainly is evidence to suggest this is the case. A closer examination is needed- lets get those historical texts out again. I believe it has been prophecised that the mystery of the allu and tyhe warrior will only be solved with the discovery of the second great unknown artwork. However, I have some suspicions regarding the authenticity of this piece in realtion to the theory of the eclair and clubs of death. The artist of this piece is known to be Simran Kaur (not a name which features in any of the cookbooks I have consulted). And also, doesn't the Singhnee look a little young to be the mother?

Either way, before we proceed any further, we must first praise this artwork in the manner we have praised the warrior. Despite the controversy regarding the authenticity, this image is certainly of a very high calibre. I await your artistic interpretations of this masterpiece (No offence to the Simran Kaur meant by this post- I really do like this picture- the simplicity is what makes it so good. Have you got any others?)

Hmm i agree....i think we can rule out the bailna eclair theory as proposed early there are many flaws in it as you have pointed out. However, i must say the artwork by Simran Kaur is amazing, your right the simple use of colour and texture really comes across well.....i have a feeling that although it is technically superior to the khalsa warrior painting...it does not have the same histotical value although i think we both agree further studies will need to be carried out. Notice the use of orthodox plane paper....i think simran might be trying to convey a hidden message through this......my team is working on deciphering this message as we speak (Btw bhenji for the dastaar of the singhnee what instruments did u use to colour it - and Harpal is right.....i think your picture is ace....Please scan some more that you have drawn <_< )

On a serious note: That icy blue colour on the dastaar is amazing.

Now, onto more important things, I too was intigued by the orthodoxical integrity of the paper used. Plain paper is certainly an interesting choice. Note how the right hand side of the face of the Singhnee merges with the paper to show how everything is the creation of Waheguru, and nothing is seperate from anything else if we come to realise this. The whole of creation is one.

The technical mastery of this picture suggests that while it may indeed not link well with the bailna eclair theory, it is more likely to be thje theory than artwork that is inaccurate.

Wow bro, I think that’s the best interpretation we have got so far. You can never be too sure with these things; nothing is as it seems as proposed by by a new interesting metaphor theory. However, also notice unlike the khalsa warrior the singnee seems to lost her limbs. Could this be pointing to the fact that these limbs are not ours but instead belong to waheguru, and as a corollary they should only be used for virtuous and noble deeds.

An apt observation my fellow histortian. The limbs are present, but we cannot see them, for they are not real- they are all a part of the illusion of maya that binds people, that craetes the attactment in which the world is lost. Once such attatchemnt is no longer present, one will realise their physical body does not really exist, and has been gifted in this illusion solely for the puropse of noble acts. This must be why the Singhnee is still content, even though to the viewer it appaers she has no arms/legs- they are ona physical level present, but the paiting is done taking the perspective of a higher level, and thus does not include such worldly features. Truly Brilliant- who would have imagined such a degree of symbolism could be expressed in one single artwork?

Ahhh I agree...notice how nothing seems to be in the painting, however everything is really there. Maybe the artist is trying to convey the message that just because you cant see something does not mean it doesnt exist..... I believe the white background is symbolic for purity...a state which still needs to be achieved in the khalsa warrior painting which we found to consist of chaos as opposed to a structured order. The Ying and Yang may not lie within the khalsa warrior picture, but may lie in the differences between this work of art and the khalsa warrior painting....what do u think?

It certainly is a far more tranquil piece than the Khalsa warrior. It is like the Singhnee here has achieved a state of bliss which the warrior strives to achive through destroying the evil allu.

Notice how the attire of the Singhnee is covered in dirt, and yet her face is clean from the same dirt.

does this not remind you of this:

nwnk qy muK aujly kyqI CutI nwil ]1]

-O Nanak, their faces are radiant in the Court of the Lord, and many are saved along with them! ||1||

nwnk qy muK ajly kyqI CutI nwil ]1]

naanak tay mukh ujlay kaytee chhutee naal. ||1||

Also, upon closer inspection, you will notice the dirt off the attire does in places contaminate the purity of the white background. This suggests that the illusion of maya is a difficult one to break, and only a true Gurmukh can be successful. Alternatively. it could mean that the line between purity and dirt is blurred, and thus us mortals are incapable of judging what is good and bad- hence we should not judge anyone

bro, which university did u say u did your phd at? grin.gif your interpretations seem spot on about this work of art. And I agree with you, I think the artist is trying to suggest that nothing in this world is black and white, and everything is so finely mixed with each other to produce the grey world as we see it. The only white thing which is set on a very narrow path, is the path of Satguru Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji. Once we stick to the path the veil of covering the true world is lifted and we can see the world for what it really is blush.gif
