About the artwork

The Ganges is one of seven sacred rivers in India. There is no other river on earth subject to such adoration. Several sacred sites in India are situated along its 3,000 k long river bank. The town of Varanasi, also known as Benares, is one of the seven holy Hindu towns. Situated on the left bank of the Ganges, facing the rising sun, the town is important for pilgrimage dedicated to Shiva. Benares is famous for its ghats (steep steps to the river) which allow the river to be reached to practice ablutions. Visited by hermits and pilgrims for over 3,000 years, the town is dedicated to Shiva.
