introduction

A few may be aware of the power and glory of Indian art and history. Indeed, its origin is traced all the way back to Indus valley civilization, around 3500 BC. Today, we witness country’s rich and diverse cultural heritage through what remains of ancient art practices and contemporary artist who carry on the tradition. Early Indian art find its expression through a variety of shapes and mediums similar to its rich history. Rock art, ‘ageless’ terracotta goddess figures, seals, pottery, scroll paintings, miniatures, sculptures, panels, among other describe a variety of Indian art form. Among these, the art of Indian sculpting emerged to gain significant momentum. Image-making through sculpture played a pivotal role in spiritual devotion across India’s religions.

OUR GALLERY

Mystik River is an art gallery that brings the art of ancient Indian sculpting to Australia. Discover an exclusive collection by award wining sculptors who carry on the tradition of Indian sculpting. Every piece is hand carved using techniques and methods that survived centuries, a skill passed over generations from father to son. Our gallery aims to promote new talent, cultural awareness as well as a sense of aesthetic.

Our Story

The inspiration for the gallery has started from our acquaintance with our friend in India - Mr Rajesh. We bought our first Buddha statue from his gallery in Pune, called Gallery Mystica. Gallery Mystica has been established for 28 years. Him and his wife travelled all over India in remote villages initially for few years looking for talented artists . They also observed the design of sculptures from world famous temples in India like Ajanta Ellora, Khajurao, Konark , Meenakshi and many more.

These temples were their inspiration and the idea was to start a Gallery where these beautiful sculptures come to common man with affordable prices. So we shortlisted few top sculptors who had been recognised on national and state level for their work and started training them to create meditative art. Sculpture art in India has leading place in the international world of Art. Most of the sculptures we do are based on Buddhas different Gestures ( Mudras ) .Mr Rajesh has helped us in many ways in the making of our art gallery and bringing his sculptures from India to Melbourne.

Why we are different?

Having observed the current market of oriental arts, we found that most of the offers were either antiques or simply mass produced pieces, selected randomly without true, deep relations with the artists who made it. Buddha or Hindu sculptures seemed to be sold rather on commercial basis, then pieces of art.

Our idea is to deliver something more than a copy. Through our collection we deliver a visual experience of the Indian culture in all its richness and glory. Each piece is a unique creation by recognised sculptors who maintain the ancient art of Indian sculpting. They combine traditional technique and capture elements of Indian culture with visual aesthetic and beauty. Handmade from semi-precious stone or crystals, each piece is an original and one of a kind. It is something one truly calls - art.
