Order Preparation Time

We require 1 week to prepare your order. This time is used to ensure your print meets our high quality standards. The Giclee fine art printing process we use offers the best colour accuracy for print reproduction and is considered the gold standard of the art print industry. 

For canvas orders, extra time may be required for the application and drying of the UV and scratch resistant coating which will greatly extend the life of the canvas. Most people prefer to frame canvas prints without glass and this provides the necessary protection for glass free framing.

The Story

Guru Tegh Bahadur laid down his life in order to protect religious freedom for all India which was under the oppressive rule of Mughal emperor Aurunzeb, who wished to convert the entire land to Islam. According to the Guru, living a truly spiritual life meant that one should neither oppress nor allow others to be oppressed. Sikh teachings have emphasized the basic human rights of equality, justice, freedom and the right to one’s own religion. Under the inspiring guidance of Guru Tegh Bahadur, the Sikhs regained their confidence and continued to grow in numbers and resources.

Guru Tegh Bahadur refused to convert to Islam and upheld the right to freedom of religion, not only for the Sikhs but also for all other religious sects in India, including the Hindus, Jains and Buddhists. In 1659 Aurangzeb became the Mughal emperor and established his capital in Delhi. His coming to power began a long, consistent and active policy of persecution against the Sikhs and other non-Muslims. Empire Aurunzeb subjected The Guru to a long period of torture in an attempt to make him submit but ultimately failed. On November 11, 1675, Guru Tegh Bahadur, still defiant, was beheaded in a public execution. The Guru’s death was the match that set aflame a new revolution in the land of Punjab and birthed the Khalsa. The ultimate expression of defiance against state oppression.
