The sun has set, and the moon leaves a warm glow in the gardn. In the midst of the young evening a beautiful dancer has taken her place in the center of the harem. A Mughal prince enjoys the visual feast, while the hypnotic sound of a sitar and drum echo throughout the courtyard. The night was made for wine, laughter and sensory indulgences.
This traditional Mughal miniature painting comes directly from the Indian state of Rajasthan – (historically noted as the epicenter of Mughal art). It was born from a single set of masterful artisan hands, using vibrant opaque watercolors on paper with Islamic Scripts that might be describing the scene and occasion at hand. (This is an original piece, not a print).
From the borders on the floor and the regal lattice work on the walls to the brocade adorning the harem girls’ dresses, this jewel-tone delight features an incredible amount of detail. You’ll be amazed by the level of intricacy in such a small amount of space. And whether it’s for your wall, mantle or even your desk, it’s sure to bring a smile.
