Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday gifted a miniature painting depicting Sikh Guru Nanak Dev with his two disciples to his Canadian counterpart Stephen Harper.

Modi, who is on a three-day visit to Canada, presented the painting done in traditional Indian miniature style to Harper.

The composition shows Guru Nanak Dev with his two disciples Bhai Mardana and Bhai Bala, sitting beside him.

The painting is encased in intricately painted borders and made with handmade paper with mineral colours.

The work has been done by a Jaipur-based artist, Virendra Bannu.

"So many of our Punjabi brothers and sisters have made Canada their home and enriched it with their renowned vigour and entrepreneurial drive," Modi said.
