Description Background Storyline: Sahibzada Ajit Singh's horse has been seriously wounded, forcing Ajit Singh to fight on foot. The young Prince, after being wounded himself, notices a Mughal cannon being readied for the seige. He charges the infantry that guard it. Some high ranking Bhumi militiamen and Cavalrymen see his strategy and rush to the spot...The story of course is based on an actual event where Guru Gobind Singh's oldest son volunteered to defend the small fortress they were in. The Mughal army had surrounded it, and there seemed to be no escape. Guru Sahib was sending Singhs in fives to keep up the defense. Inside the fortress, many Singhs prepared themselves for death, and many defended the fort with showers of arrows, along with the Guru. This is one of Bhagat's more detailed paintings. There is a lot to look at, much to learn, and many things to discover.Once you receive the print (and make sure you get the biggest one you can), lookout for:- Mughal cavalry archers|| ||Chamkaur Di Garhi (It's there alright), the fortress with Khalsa forces||||two Singhs who charged the forces along with Prince Ajit Singh||||Mahouts (elephant riders) see how many you can find... and there's much more... seriously!
Bhagat Bedi, GTA Region Member Since July 2008 Artist Statement Bhagat Singh was born in Ludhiana, and moved to Canada when he was young. He has been painting Sikh history since he moved to Canada many years ago. He used to paint historical works done by famous Sikh artists like Sobha Singh and Kirpal Singh. Later in hischool, he started doing concept art for Sarbloh Warriors and later, Elvana. Having an interest in sciences, Bhagat enrolled in the Biology program in Ryerson. However, his painting interests had become his passion over the summer. Feeling that Sikhs are under represented in the media, Bhagat took the responsibility of putting Sikhs out there, and worked on his Sikh Mutants storyline, in hischool. He also started reading the many blood filled pages of Sikh history, being quite interested in the Sikh philosophy as well. It was during the summer of his first year in Ryerson, when he decided to paint those episodes of Sikh history. Bhagat is now striving to be a great artist and an intelligent Biology student.
