Inspired by Himalayan culture,
Jyotisha is Sanskrit for Hindu astrology, the science of tracking and predicting the movements of astronomical bodies in order to keep time. Following the scriptures of Hinduism Jyotisha's were concerned with keeping track of the seasons, days and hours in order for humans to keep in time with the Vedic ritual calendar.

Jyotisha was influenced in the centuries after the arrival of Alexander the Great and Greek astrology in 326 BC. The ancient Hindu texts on Jyotisha only discuss time keeping, they never mention astrology or prophecy.

The basis for all religious texts are influenced by more ancient ceremonial practices worshipping the changing of time, seasons and years through the tracking of the stars.

    Every original canvas has been hand painted with immense gratitude and love by Joey Baker.   

    The paintings range from weeks to months of work depending on their detail, every single piece has travelled the world extensively sometimes to multiple continents before being finished. From Jungles to deserts, Volcanoes to Tropical Islands, from Palaces to Temples to street corners and everywhere in between. They are my personal account of the world I experience.   

    Each canvas is painted with high quality acrylic paint onto Berlin based Gesso Canvas. The paintings once finished have then been double varnished in Golden © Semi-Gloss Varnish for the best results for both vibrancy and protection, they have then been individually bespoke framed.   

    Every Original Canvas also comes with:  

     

    • Signed COA (Certificate of Authenticity)   

    • Original A4 Drawing   

    • Hand Embellished Canvas Print (of your choice & size)
