Radha Krishna Swing
Radha and Krisna – two names that together represent the greatest love story of all time. Theirs was a deeply spiritual connection that was bound by unconditional respect and love.
The painting portrays Radha with her soulmate Lord Krishna atop a wooden swing in an enchanted forest setting that is as beautiful as the couple. Italian artist Pietro di Giovannantonio (Prasanta Das) captures the two in a tender moment together, where they only have eyes for each other and their souls are united.
This sublime piece is a visual representation of a love that we must all aspire to.

Shiva and the Ganges£ 175.00 – £ 1,200.00 BUY
Most depictions of Lord Shiva show the River Ganga flowing from his hair, this is the story behind this:
There once was a powerful King called Sagar, who was about to conduct a horse sacrifice, to show his power over all of the Gods. Indra, the King of Heaven became jealous of this and stole the horse. He hid the horse in the ashram of a Sage who was meditating. King Sagar and his 60,000 sons found the horse in the ashram and began assaulting the Sage, as they thought he was the culprit. The Sage woke up from his meditation and killed all of his sons. King Sagar pleaded for forgiveness. The sage told him that he could take their souls to heaven and save the life of his grandson if the River Ganga came down from the heavens to purify their souls.
The force of the River Ganga flowing down from the heavens would destroy everything on Earth. So they sought the help of Lord Shiva. As he would be the only one who could withstand the power of Ganga, to break up her descent. Thus, Ganga fell on Shiva’s head, and he calmly let her out in small streams.
This painting is a depiction of this story, one can see the River Ganga flowing from Shiva’s hair, down through the lingam, through Ganesha into Gangotri (the source of the River Ganga on earth) and then eventually into Benares/Varanasi – the City of Death and Rebirth. The artist has included so much hidden detail within this artwork, leaving you mesmerised in awe.

Christ Rising£ 200.00 – £ 525.00 BUY
The Resurrection of Christ, celebrated as Easter, is one of the chief doctrines of Christianity. It is a belief that on the third day after his Crucifixion, Jesus Christ was raised from the dead. Followers believe that as death no longer had “any mastery over Him” it gave them a chance to be spiritually resurrected with Him and live a life devoid of sin to achieve eternal salvation.
“Jesus said to her, I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?”
– John 11:25-26
Artist Jon Tomassetti recreated this blessed event in his serene artwork commissioned by Art-ma on the occasion of Easter.
Aum The Primordial Vibration£ 75.00 – £ 600.00 BUY
The universal sound of AUM is the primordial sound of the Universe. It’s the sound that reverberates in the entire cosmos and in every cell of our body. It is believed to be the sound present at the beginning of the universe from which all creation spawned
The symbol has spiritual meaning across all Indian religions such as Buddhism, Hinduism, Jainism and Sikhism. The three phonetic components of AUM correspond to the three stages of cosmic creation, and when it is read or said, it celebrates the creative powers of the universe. When taken letter by letter, A-U-M represents the divine energy (Shakti) united in its three elementary aspects: Brahma Shakti (creation), Vishnu Shakti (preservation) and Shiva Shakti (liberation, and/or destruction). The letter ‘A’ represents the waking state, ‘U’ the dream state and ‘M’ the unconscious state.
The large curve at the bottom of the symbol represents the state of awakening; the middle curve is the dream state; and the upper curve denotes the state of deep sleep. The crescent shape at the top represents Maya (illusion), which prevents us from reaching our goal – the highest state of bliss. The dot signifies the fourth state of self-consciousness, Turiya. Turiya is the state of liberation, peace and bliss, when one truly connects with the Divine.
Here, the AUM symbol is represented by the artist using a technique called fragmentation.
