Subject matter and symbol chosen for artwork is sourced from Sri Guru Granth Sahib the foundation of Sikh religion. The fifth patshahi Guru Arjan Dev had compiled and established the "Adi Granth" in Harmandar Sahib in 1604. It was the tenth patshahi Guru Gobind Singh who dictated the current form and ordained Sri Guru Granth Sahib to be the embodiment of the Gurus. Originating with the divine birth of Guru Nanak in 1469, Sikh religion started with the creation of Khalsa in an unprecedented ritual performed by Guru Gobind Singh on Baisakhi of 1699.
